The Overcomers Place is a free* not-for-profit treatment centre for those overcoming any addiction.
In Australia someone dies every 90 mins of an alcohol-related illness (NDRI)
The devastating reality is that addiction often causes individuals to fall through the cracks of society.
This is preventable.
Group based treatment allows those suffering from addiction to understand that they are not alone.
This is essential for sustaining recovery.
The Overcomers Place provides support within a safe environment.
“The opposite of addiction is not sobriety. The opposite of addiction is genuine, meaningful interactions and authentic connections and experiences with ourselves; each other; and the world around us”.Jennifer Nicolaisen
* We request a one off payment to conduct an initial assessment, which supports the running of The Overcomers Place. Following intake, all services are free-of-charge.
The catastrophic ripple effect of addiction knows no bounds to the lives, families and communities we all live in. We have a dedicated family supporters group on Thursday Afternoons at Gladesville. Contact us.
Fortunately, your support also has a ripple effect
The power of a story. Today I told my story at my home group of AA where I celebrated 18 years sober. Randomly a young indigenous chap came in and sat behind me. He told me he was recently released from jail and he had a cousin sober in AA and this was his first meeting. I shared my experience, strength and hope. Then I had the real privilege of inviting him to The Overcomers Place on Monday. He has no resources, no work, and no where else to go and he’s willing to to do anything to stay sober. We’ll see him Monday before group to complete the paperwork and he’ll have three hours of free group therapy with a recovered alcoholic specialist counsellor and a room of likeminded individuals who’ve all been where he is today. His body will begin to feel a sense of safe sobriety and he will have the opportunity to heal. This work is priceless… what incredible grace and mercy we have to offer anyone willing to show up one day at a time.March 19, 2021
