Why We Exist
Addiction is Deadly
In Australia someone dies every 90 mins of an alcohol-related illness and over 70% of Domestic Violence incidence are alcohol related. These statistics are preventable.
Addiction to alcohol, drugs and gambling can affect anyone. It works in a vicious cycle that can only be broken through a sustainable recovery program.
Recovery is Hard
Early detection of substance abuse and accessing sustainable treatment are key to successful and long term recovery.
Operating a non-residential treatment centre means that we can guide individuals through their recovery journey as they learn to face the challenges of day to day life with a new set of tools.
Overcoming is Possible
We have a team of professionals, who have overcome their own addictions, to help individuals and their families break the addiction cycle.
Providing a free service based on neurobiological trauma informed principles allows us to reach the individuals struggling with addiction that would otherwise fall through the cracks.
