‘Our son Marcus was using ice and coming home full of crazy energy then going to bed for days. His behaviour hurt his younger sister and made our home life highly stressful. The only time he was willing to talk to professionals was when he coming down from the drugs but was too tired to leave the house. We were at our wits end. My cousin found ASV on the Internet and said they could make contact with Marcus at home. After a call with the ASV staff, we learned how to encourage Marcus to speak with Jason on zoom and something happened. Marcus listened and said he would give the program a go. The program came to Marcus and he was able to work it at his own pace. It is genuinely an individual program and available when we needed it. Marcus hasn’t looked back. Thanks Jason and the ASV team.’
ASV is governed by a board of directors who responded to community requests to create and develop an accessible, reputable and evidence-based drug and alcohol recovery program; they wanted to assist people to change their lives for the better and achieve satisfying long-term success. The ASV directors are also invested in providing comprehensive support to family members and other people impacted by the drug and alcohol use or abuse of other people. We have been around since 2015 and, with support from community members, families and professionals, are firmly established as an effective program offering research-based long-term drug and alcohol recovery for people seeking positive change.
In 2020, ASV was approached by families in Geelong and asked if ASV could expand its services to Geelong and the Barwon Shire to meet the needs of local people. In response to these requests, we have began delivering our evidenced based Rehab at Home program in the Geelong area and linked it to our successful best-practice tele-health and online treatment services.
Since our establishment, ASV has been assisting people to address their drug and alcohol problems; mend relationships with their families and community; and develop and reach goals regarding their general and emotional health. Using our experience, skills and the well-researched Living in Balance program, we help people to assess their own needs and co-create an individualised program that is available face-to-face and online.
Our clients benefit from ASV comprehensive assessments, in-house and on-line support and effective referrals to appropriate community and private programs. They express deep satisfaction with their progress and new opportunities.
Our staff are highly skilled and credentialed; they are leaders in the field of addiction. Their professional support is backed up by Danya’s Living in Balance program and our effective partnerships with private and public recovery programs. We are excited about working with people from Geelong and South-Western Victoria.
The ASV team includes an Addiction Medicine Physician (Specialist) and an Addiction Psychologist who provide these specialist supports when required.
We also support families and other people who have been impacted by others’ drugs and alcohol use. The latest research suggests that family and friends can be the most important factor in a person’s recovery and that family and friends require support, education and empathy to maintain their own health and stability. Our rehab-at-home includes information and support for family members and friends.
"With the growth in web-based and phone treatment services, supported by personal contact, people can co-design their own comprehensive treatment based on what they need and wherever they live, ASV is in an uniques position to support any Victorian impacted in a negative manner by an addiction". - Jase Bowman - ASV CEO - Drug and Alcohol Rehab Geelong 2020.
