We are here to help. We believe passionately that people can change and that everyone has the right to live with dignity.

Lives Lived Well provides support for people in Queensland communities who are being impacted by alcohol or drugs or problems with mental health.

If concerned about the role that drugs or alcohol plays in your life, or the lives of your loved ones, you can call us to speak to one of our professional counsellors by phoning 1300 727 957.

Alcohol and drug counselling

Free alcohol or drug counselling is provided at each of our 16 Queensland-based centres and free over-the-phone counselling is offered during office hours. Find a service near you, or call us to find out about our outreach coverage.

We provide alcohol and drug counselling and support for adults, young people, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities, families, individuals and groups, and people with complex needs, including mental health concerns.

Live-in and recover

If drugs or alcohol are having a serious impact, you may want to consider live-in rehabilitation at one of our three rehabilitation centres: Logan House (Chambers Flat), Mirikai (West Burleigh) or Shanty Creek (Mareeba).

Mirikai is now offering a 28 Day Program for intensive drug and alcohol rehabilitation as well as longer stay programs.

Mental health, medical and prevention services

We proudly lead headspace Southport, and the Banjara Medical Centre on the Gold Coast, which offers bulk-billed services for concession card holders.

We also have a statewide prevention team, Act on Alcohol.
