Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of recovering from addiction?

Recovering from addiction can have a multitude of positive impacts on an individual’s life. Here are some key advantages to consider:

Enhanced physical well-being: Addiction often takes a toll on physical health due to the harmful effects of substance abuse.

Are there any Addiction Coaching  alternatives in Australia?

For those dealing with addiction, finding the right support to help them break free can be a daunting task. Take Robert, for example; he had been struggling with substance abuse since his 20s and was desperately wanting something that could assist him to recover and turn his life around.

Due to his personal circumstances he was unable to hire a coach. Robert felt hopeful after hearing about alternative services to Addiction Recovery Coaching in Australia. 

Alternative services to Addiction Recovery Coaching could include: 

  • Group therapy depending on your specific needs.
  • Self-help programs – embracing healthy habits such as exercise and meditation can provide you with a sense of control over your life and allow you to tackle difficult emotions in a positive way.
  • Addiction Treatment Centers
  • Alcohol Treatment Centre
  • Rehab Centers
  • Drug Detox Services
  • Inpatient Rehabilitation 
  • Outpatient Addiction Services 
  • Australian Addiction Help Hotline – Emergency cases please contact the Family Drug Support – Family Drug Support provides information and support for families of drug and alcohol users, including a 24 hour support line. Phone: 1300 368 186
  • 24/7 Crisis Support Call 13 11 14 (Australia wide)
  • 12-Step Program: A 12-step program refers to a specific type of self-help program that follows a set of guiding principles originally developed by Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). These programs provide a structured framework for individuals seeking recovery from various addictions or behavioral issues.



One of the most widely recognized 12-step programs is Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), which focuses on alcohol addiction.

However, it’s important to note that similar programs exist for various other addictions. Examples include Narcotics Anonymous (NA) for drug addiction, Gamblers Anonymous (GA) for gambling addiction, and Overeaters Anonymous (OA) for food-related addiction.

These programs emphasise important principles such as surrendering to a higher power, making amends, and providing support through group meetings, sponsorship, and working through the 12 steps.

Participation in a 12-step program is typically voluntary, and individuals attend meetings regularly to share their experiences, receive support, and actively engage in their recovery journey.

When it comes to finding the right service for your specific needs, it’s crucial to explore various options. Don’t feel overwhelmed by the abundance of choices. If these services are not what you are looking for (particularly if you are atheist or agnostic)  then it is a good idea to book a free call with Roslyn to discuss how she could help you. However some individuals utilise Roslyn’s addiction recovery coaching along side other recovery treatments. 

Take the time to research and determine which program or approach aligns best with your circumstances and preferences.

Once you’ve identified the suitable fit, take action and commit to making positive changes in your life by actively participating in the chosen program or service.
