The Vesta Approach
The Vesta Approach is based on a behavioural model of treatment for alcohol and other drug use. This means that through working with a ‘concerned family member’, even when your loved one has no intention of changing, you can influence change in their behaviour. This means, you can influence their substance use.
There are four main principles to the programme which are:
- Rewarding your loved one when sober
- Communication Techniques
- Disabling enabling behaviours
- Withdrawing when your loved one uses
The idea is that your loved one will start to think about getting help for their drug or alcohol use through me supporting you to respond differently to their behaviour.
I will teach you the skills you need to respond differently when your loved one drinks or uses drugs so that they realise they do need to change. It will be hard work but it will be worth it. We will work together step by step and not only improve your life but hopefully get them the treatment they need too.
My mission is to support families and partners to recover from a loved one’s drug or alcohol use and improve their quality of life.
My vision is to provide services and forge a community, helping as many families as possible live their lives fully and free from addiction.
