  1. I was a resident at The Basin 17 years ago. I loved it, particularly the cow farm work. The 16 weeks off the grog was good. I began drinking again the night of the day I left. The skills and attitudes learned at Rehab helped me get off again and now stay off, for years.

    • Unfortunately the cows are long gone Peter, I was also there as a resident in 2003 and loved the milking shifts. After a relapse in 2013 I returned and now the work therapy is all about raking leaves…… you rake them one day and the next day they’re back and you do it all again……….. definition of insanity. The centre was an awesome place to recover but it has gone downhill big time since the dairy farm days.

  2. Its a hard slog but if i can do it, anyone can. There is some decent people who work here and care about your progress. Not all of them but thats probably the same everywhere. I went here four years ago and I have been drinking off and on ever since. But, the time I spent here saved my life.
