Posponed… Cyclers, keep practicing

Bad news…. we cant ride Avalon to Bondi this year! The Lockdown restrictions has meant we have decided to postpone our Cycle Challenge until 2022.

Australian & NZ Addiction Conference Jun7-9

We hosted a booth and Penny spoke about The Overcomers Place on the Gold Coast. This conference attracts colleagues in the field providing services across the board. So many we met were in awe of our ability to provide such an accessible, effective and sustainable service to our clients. THANK YOU to our supporters for allowing this to happen.

Free Public Education Evening on Addiction

On Tuesday 23rd March 2021, we hosted a public education evening including insightful presentations from Prof of Sydney Uni and Psychiatrist Dr Stephen Jurd, Penny Wilkinson from The Overcomes Place and a live link to Shanna Whan from Sober in the Country. There was also a lively Question and answer session with presenters Penny Wilkinson and Dr Stephen Jurd who were joined by Mark Stephens from The Overcomers Place and Dr Mike Atherton from The Sydney Clinic.
