B.R.A.D.A.A.G Rehabilitation Program (Tennant Creek, N.T)

The B.R.A.D.A.A.G Rehabilitation Program (Tennant Creek, N.T) was established in 1982 as a community based group to address Alcohol & Other Drug (AOD) issues in the Tennant Creek and greater Barkly region. Initially the focus of the group was on providing a safe place for intoxicated persons to ‘sober-up’ where they would not be a cause of harm to themselves or others and a sobering up shelter was established in 1984. During the last thirty years BRADAAG has grown into a respected organisation and have experienced significant growth in their services and facilities.

The Rehabilitation Program is a three-month program designed to assist clients in understanding their addiction, its causes, and the way behaviour needs to alter in order to combat their dependency.

Both men and women are accepted into the program, and all clients are assessed as to their suitability to enter into the program by one of the BRADAAG Case Workers. The Case Worker works with the client on an individual basis to come up with a personal treatment plan. One-on-one sessions with their Case Worker and group therapy are both excellent ways to help learn new strategies to help deal with addiction, misuse and relapse.

Education sessions on how to minimise the harm created by alcohol consumption and/or other drug, and the social consequences of such behaviour, are highlighted. Life skills, personal development including anger management, literacy & learning, nutrition, financial budgeting and health & hygiene make this a diverse program. Cultural activities, recreation and physical exercise are also very important components of the program.

For four mornings a week all clients are engaged in work therapy on a voluntary basis for the community of Tennant Creek. This element of the program has proved very successful and is popular with the clients as it not only improves their skill base and employability, but also gives them a renewed sense of self-worth.

  1. I was nervous about entering a drug and alcohol rehab, but I’m so glad I did. The program was intense, but it was exactly what I needed to overcome my addiction. The staff was amazing and always available to help, and the support from my peers in the program was invaluable. I highly recommend this facility to anyone looking for a supportive and effective path to recovery

  2. This place provided me with the foundation I needed to overcome my addiction. I had been trying to get clean for most of my life and had little to no success. The staff was understanding, compassionate, and always available to help, and the therapy sessions were incredibly effective. I’m now in a much better place and I’m so grateful for my time at the rehab

  3. The pattern of relapse was normal for me for over 20 years and a constant source of stress and anxiety for me. I felt like I was always failing, and I struggled to find the strength to keep trying. I had come to a pint that I did not believe there was another way to live. There is so much bullshit out there about addiction and addiction treatment and it is hard to believe if anyone was actually telling the truth. I wanted to be somewhere n the middle, not using but not clean, I did not realise that this included actually getting clean, firs. I am not the same person I was before, I am not a straight person, but I am free of it. Using drugs every might seem fun and cool for a while, great nights, parties and interesting people, then you find yourself locked in a bathroom in an underground night club sharing a needle with some neo Nazi you just met, who just told you they had hep c. That’s was drug using really is. It’s a lie people tell themselves. A great big lie.
    For me, I use other things to managed emotional pain today and this place really kicked off my recovery, thanks guys
