New art and nutrition program

A new art therapy and nutrition skills program is being incorporated in the Sliding Doors non-residential alcohol and other drug rehabilitation program

Nourishing Recovery will enhance the recovery journey of participants and has received funding from the Wanless Family Fund, a sub fund of the Australian Communities Foundation.

The art therapy project will consist of a five-weekly session conducted by a professional artist who has lived experience of mental illness and substance use who has been in recovery for several years and now delivers artistic skills to participants to aid in building confidence and self-esteem.

The cooking program will consist of a weekly cooking session and dietitian education session that culminates in using a community-based kitchen facility to cook meals that are affordable on low income and also meet basic nutritional requirements.

The program will provide participants with a creative outlet for self-expression and emotional exploration, enhance their self-awareness and self-esteem, promote relaxation and stress reduction, and foster personal growth and empowerment.
