Freeman House is a service providing both residential and community based programs for adults experiencing homelessness and/or addiction. In particular, we provide a residential rehabilitation service, services in the community and intensive support for people without homes (both before and after a crisis). Freeman House is committed to the provision of quality services that promote positive change in people’s lives. Our services are underpinned by evidence-based case management, creative programming, counselling and other therapeutic interventions aimed at providing an environment which encourages people to take control of their own destiny.
Freeman House offers a three to 12 month service known as the Longer Term Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Service. During this time clients are required to live on-site and participate fully in the compulsory elements of the rehabilitation schedule. The schedule consists of individual and group counselling, case management, art and music therapy, mindfulness and meditation sessions, physical activities such as gym, yoga and outings including visits to local National Parks. The various therapeutic groups are aimed at exploring individual thoughts, feelings and behaviours, providing education, assisting the development of personal living skills, self-reflection and personal development.
The addition of new detox beds in 2015, and a partnership with the University of New England School of Rural Medicine, School of Health and Social Work is expanding our program and capacity in this area further.(From Website)
