Latest Australian Rehab Information

 

 

Rehabreviews.com.au is aimed at helping consumers connect with the appropriate services they are looking for in Drug, Alcohol and Addiction Residential Rehabilitation Services.

We do not offer our own reviews on rehabs but ask only consumers to comment, write reviews and inform others of their experience in treatment or request information from other consumers about previous experiences with particular treatments.

Rehabreviews.com.au is not responsible for the comments made by consumers but extremely negative reviews may need to be verified and the treatment service offered a response in reply to being posted alongside the original post.

It can be a very daunting task trying to find out what rehab best suits you or your loved one. Anybody entering recovery is impressionable, vulnerable, sensitive, scared, generally isolated and both physically and mentally sick.

We will try to dispel myths, make clear and precise points and advocate on behalf of the consumer so they are able to enter the right treatment as gently and as quickly as possible.
