What the Blue Cross does
The Blue Cross provides healthcare and holistic well-being. It is dedicated to
- caring for people dependent on alcohol and/or illicit drugs, and for their family members as well;
- preventing alcohol- and illicit drug-related harm on local, national, and international levels – especially among children and youth.
The Blue Cross is a supporter, counsellor, and encourager. It is a provider of practical help and developer of useful skills. It is an aid to recovery.
Blue Cross activities may vary depending on the context, needs, and resources available. Overall, they are characterised by the choice of, and emphasis on, an integrated approach to prevention, treatment & counselling, and aftercare.
