The F.O.R.W.A.A.R.D Aboriginal Corporation (Stuart Park, N.T) has been one of the Northern Territory’s leading substance misuse treatment centres for almost five decades. In 2017 FORWAARDwill celebrate its 50th Anniversary of empowering Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to overcome alcohol and other substance abuse, making it one of the longest serving community-based service organisations of its type in the Northern Territory.
Our primary activity is that of providing residential Drug & Alcohol rehabilitation programs for both Indigenous and non- Indigenous clients, some referred via the court system and others being Voluntary Clients.
The FORWAARD Treatment Team is responsible for the running of the Alcohol and other drugs Rehabilitation Programs. These are ‘client focused’ aimed at the clients individual and group needs. The 12 week Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) Residential Rehabilitation Program also offers clients the opportunity to identify and address the main issues and concerns they have with their substance misuse.
