The Glen – Central Coast Alcohol And Drug Rehabilitation Centre (Chittaway Point, N.S.W) 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 organisation has a bus to carry clients to meetings and vehicles to transport clients.
The facilities have common rooms and TV facilities including pay TV facilities. The visitors to clients have appropriate facilities.
The program has its own doctor located at Tuggerah who devises a comprehensive medical program for each client.
WHO IS WELCOME AT ‘THE GLEN’ ?
The organisaton welcomes all men over the age of 18 who could benefit from our program.
The program is not limited to accepting indigenous clients only.
The organisation is proud to be one that helps break down the barriers between indigenous and non-indigenous Australians and works towards reconciliation.
The organisation 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.
- There has, and continues to be, an over-representation of Indigenous Australians in the prison system.
- There are hazardous levels of use of alcohol and other substances by Indigenous Australians.
- There are lower levels of participation in education and employment by Indigenous Australians compared to the general population.
What is The Glen?
The Glen was established on unused land at Chittaway in 1994. The site is located on 16 hectares and is now a modern rehabilitation facility with 35 residential rehabilitation beds (including 15 transition beds). The Transition Houses were established at the Chittaway site in 2010. These are Halfway Houses for men who have completed our basic rehabilitation program.
We are staffed by 13 full time, part time and casual staff along with a team of volunteers. We are a QIP accredited organisation and in 2015 set a national benchmark for health and community standards, exceeding 6 of the standards.
