People aged up to 35 years may be accepted on a case by case basis. Based on a Therapeutic Community model, our residents live together and support each other to learn, grow and recover in a drug-free setting.

Our goal is to see lives lived well – free from harmful drug or alcohol use.

Our program runs over four stages.
