PHILOSOPHY AND VALUES

We believe that the reasons for drug use are both social and psychological. Therefore the Mirikai program has been designed to incorporate flexibility so that we can best meet the problems and progress of the individual resident. We strongly believe in consumer and community participation. We believe that the consumers both primary and secondary, should be involved in the development, design and evaluation of the program for all clients. Because we are ultimately responsible to the community, we will use all avenues available to us to facilitate community participation in the conduct of our programs.

Our programs can assist our target group to strengthen their decision to stop taking their drug(s) of dependence, and to deal with the underlying reasons for drug use.

Our programs offer clients practical skills that can help their behaviour to become more self-regulatory, and enhance their choices in making major lifestyle changes in order to minimise the harm of their drug(s) of dependence.
