The Aboriginal Sobriety Group (ASG) is a not-forprofit organisation providing care and support to individuals, families and communities who wish to lead a drug and alcohol-free lifestyle.
They provide culturally appropriate pathways away from grief, loss, trauma and abusive lives. Additional services to the organisation include homelessness support, assisting in early intervention and prevention, crisis accommodation, intensive tenancy support, outreach support and waitlist support.
Intract Australia’s General Manager Southern Australia, John Briggs has created a joint partnership with Civil Contractors Federation (CCF) SA and Department of Industry & Skills (DIS) to help fund and facilitate the Aboriginal Sobriety Group’s participants training.
Through the partnership, the “Buildings Pathways Project” was created, which takes a proactive approach to providing the participants with a sense of purpose and wellbeing, as well as accredited skill sets in general civil construction. The project entails the back filling of old dams on site to create a level deck for future use.
The project is based on the need for land redevelopment at ASG and John’s strong desire to provide the participants with long-term skills, motivation and purpose throughout their rehabilitation process and beyond their time at ASG.
John hopes that the skills, qualifications, confidence and support gained throughout this project will encourage a positive transition for those involved back into the community as well as providing them with the necessary skills required for future employment, based on the acquired skills.
The Aboriginal Sobriety Group also launched their Women’s Rehabilitation House of Hope on Wednesday 13th of June at their facilities in Monarto, South Australia.
We applaud ASG for their hard work and their commitment to providing care and support to affected individuals and communities.
