Palmerston Therapeutic Community (Kwinana, W.A) offers a residential rehabilitation program designed for people wishing to address their substance issues. The T.C is a 10 acre semi-rural property located 30 minutes south of Perth and also contains a further transitional house for four residents at a time.
The Therapeutic Community provides a safe drug and alcohol free environment that offers residents the opportunity to make the positive changes they want to make in their life. This is accomplished through personal growth within a community of concerned people working together to help themselves and one another.
The aim of the program is to provide a safe environment, to encourage a sense of purpose in life and to foster a natural desire for personal growth, self-knowledge and self responsibility.
We believe this personal development enables residents to instigate and maintain the changes required to face the challenges of effective everyday living. Mindful of these goals, our program contains various components, including:
- active involvement in the therapeutic community as the primary task
- developing optimal mental and physical health and well-being
- self-management skills and social skills training
- vocational training
- horticultural and gardening activities
- counselling and group work
- sport and recreational involvement
- art and craft work
