Aranda House

DASA is a growing organisation with a team of enthusiastic and dedicated staff across each of its branches.

Aranda House is a 20 bed Therapeutic Community that offers a 12 week program and we also offer an eight week program for Volatile Substance Misusers. The Transitional After Care Unit is also attached to the Aranda House facility; this is semi independent living supported by DASA staff and clients can stay for up to a year in this Program.  Each client coming through our doors has a thorough assessment to look at their achievable goals and assigned to a Case Worker. The program is a therapeutic community model where clients are actively involved in their own personal recovery in a supportive and caring environment. Aranda also offers an initial detoxification and withdrawal service that can be co-managed with another health service should a medical detox be necessary.

DASA also offers an Independent Living Program for the latter stages of the client journey.  Apartments are available for clients to live in with their family while they still retain the support of the Case Management Team from Aranda House.  Employment, family relationships and long term planning are key areas of focus.

The guiding principle of all DASA programs is to recognize the sovereignty of the individual and their right to self determination and decision making, but also recognizing the responsibility of society to provide an environment where personal development towards a better lifestyle is supported and valued.
