The Glen - Central CoastThe Glen provides residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation. The Glen offers a long-term residential program based on the twelve step programs of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous.

We have group counselling, one to one counselling and work programs, in which all clients are expected to participate.

Clients also attend outside meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, usually of an evening.

We provide clients with all meals, all bed linen and bedding. Clients should provide work clothes, going out clothes, personal toiletries, towels and shaving gear.

Clients have access to a gymnasium for personal use as well as laundry facilities.

We are developing a library of resources to enable clients to read more about recovery from addiction. We are also improving resources to be used in educational and group discussion programmes.The Glen has a bus to carry clients to meetings and vehicles to transport clients. The Glen have common rooms and TV facilities including pay TV facilities. The visitors to clients have appropriate facilities.

The Glen has its own doctor located at Tuggerah who devises a comprehensive medical program for each client.


The Glen welcomes all men over the age of 18 who could benefit from our program. The Glen is not limited to accepting indigenous clients only. The Glen is proud to be an organisation that helps break down the barriers between indigenous and non-indigenous Australians and works towards reconciliation.

The Glen acknowledges while Indigenous Australians are struggling with drug and alcohol abuse issues, it is a common problem in all aspects of modern Australian society. Addiction doesn’t discriminate on the basis of colour or anything else.
