Matt Rands, BA APPLIED PSYCH (HONS), RPC, ICADC, SAP Assessment Coordinator

Matt believes that providing family and clients with clarity in their story and level of impairment can be empowering when deciding the next steps. He achieves this by helping to create a plan of action that addresses the current situation intending to improve quality of life. Using his personal experience and education, Matt can empathise with the destruction of relationships and personal life that addiction enables.  

Through proper assessment and recommendations, Matt can empower families and loved ones to make better-informed decisions and create an amicable and solution-focused care plan. His education, training, and knowledge assist others in understanding the misuse of substances and provide a more straightforward path to recovery.
