Welcome to the SHADE Treatment Program

SHADE has been designed to help people experiencing both depressive symptoms and who are drinking alcohol or using other drugs, and has been trialled in a number of clinical and research settings with over 350 Australians.

If you decide to use the SHADE program, you will be taken through a process of working out which parts of your current lifestyle might be distressing, worrying, or upsetting you. You can then access a range of tips, informationand strategies to help change these particular part, and develop a lifestyle that is more in line with your goals, wants and needs.

You can only access the SHADE program in collaboration with a recognised health professional or SHADE clinician. This person will be able to provide you with the login details required to get started on the program.
