A Village in Practise
 
 
The First Floor Program has been a Village of Support for families impacted by Drug and Alcohol and/or Mental Health Issues for over twenty years.
 
We use the “Village” as a metaphor to describe our model of working with families and providing a safe place to access support and assistance.
 
 

“My village has given me my life back.

It has allowed me to deal with a difficult situation in my life that is ongoing. It is still hard sometimes but other times it is ok.

I truly thank the day I walked in to their office”

WHY FAMILIES?

 

“Just being in a room with other families with a loved one with Drug & Alcohol or Mental Health issues was a lifeline. I felt very marginalised and alone but sharing together, getting  information and understanding the processes our loved one is going through brought empathy and relief”
