The Relapse and Maintenance Support Day Program provides ongoing support and treatment for people in their recovery from addiction. RAMS is a weekly program held onsite at The Geelong Clinic and can be accessed either following completion of the Inpatient Program or directly via a GP referral to an accredited psychiatrist.
Who is this program for?
The program is tailored to meet the group needs but essentially provides support for those wanting to additional support to overcome challenges with:
- drugs or other substances,
- sex and
- social media.
How will it help me?
The program aims to help participants address patterns of addictive behaviours, build capacity to manage addictive patterns and develop helpful thoughts and beliefs that enhance quality of life.
The program is skills based with the aim of teaching participants alternative behaviours to manage emotions, relationships and crises effectively in a supportive group setting.
When does it run?
The RAMS Day Program can be commenced at any time and runs on an ongoing basis at our recently refurbished, Geelong-based facility.
RAMS group sessions are held every Wednesday at 9:30am -12:30pm.
How do I access the program?
To be admitted to our programs, you will need to ask your General Practitioner for a referral to a Geelong Clinic accredited Psychiatrist. The Psychiatrist will then refer you to the Day Program.
Your GP can address your referral to: ‘Dear Doctor…’ or a Psychiatrist of your choice.
The referral should be faxed by your GP to 03 5248 4852.
Once cover or funding is checked and confirmed, the program coordinator will coordinate next steps with you.
