Rick Hammersley CentreThe Rick Hammersley therapeutic community is located north of Perth, Western Australia on 32 acres of national bush land. Like Serenity Lodge it is also is apart of Cyrenian House which is a not-for-profit non-government organisation that has been operating within the alcohol and other drug treatment sector since 1981.

A four-stage program based on the Therapeutic community (TC) model, residents are expected to complete the first two stages of the program (16 weeks) in order to graduate.

To get the maximum benefits of recovery from alcohol and other drug dependency issues, the program encourages residents to complete the following third and fourth stages of the program (stay up to a year).

The Rick Hammersley therapeutic community, in partnership with Madjitil Moorna Choir of Aboriginal Reconciliation, provides opportunities for Aboriginal residents to reconnect with culture through song and language. (From website)
