Staff

Professional care

Our staff know what it’s like to detox and have their own experience with addiction. We offer 24-hour care to a maximum of five clients at any one time, with a client to staff ratio of 2:1. Our staff work right along side you, offering one-on-one counselling and group therapy every day.

Our team of nurses, counsellors and therapists are here to make sure your withdrawal process is as smooth as possible. We have a visiting doctor and onsite nursing staff to accompany you to your medical appointments and pharmacy dispensary if necessary. Our nurses supervise your medication regime and administer health checks routinely every day. Our counsellors work you through the necessary stages of change, helping you to understand and address the underlying causes of your addiction.

Your support team include specialised Alcohol and Drug (AOD) workers, counsellors, psychologists, social workers, nurses and a private visiting doctor. We also offer post-withdrawal services with a counsellor or psychologist so you can stay connected and prevent relapsing.

Our management team also includes a full time naturopath and nutritionist if you prefer a non-medical detox supported by natural medicines.

Our cooks prepare the very best in nutritious and delicious food so you have the best chance of feeling healthy as soon as possible.
