Live-in and recover

In a peaceful, rural area south of Brisbane, Logan House is offering a renewed specialist residential alcohol and drug program, delivered over six-week cycles, helping people over the age of 18. While staying with us, you will undertake an evidence-based, flexible program, which provides strategies to help you:

  • reduce substance use
  • manage life challenges
  • develop goals
  • learn parenting skills, if needed
  • and prevent relapse, towards supporting lives free from the harms of drugs or alcohol.

 

Get prepared

As soon as you make contact with us, you will be able to access support, as you can see one of our counsellors in the community. This free counselling can help you prepare for entering our live-in program.

On entering

You will be welcomed and settled in, before meeting your treatment facilitator who is honoured to work with you and guide you through the program. With patience and curiosity, your facilitator will seek to understand your needs and treatment goals and work with you to tailor a plan to help get your life back in line with your potential.

Our program

We believe in delivering a program of respect that you can feel proud to be part of. Our care is holistic, tailored to individual needs and education-based. The program takes a harm-minimisation approach and applies a community environment of learning and support as well as individual counselling.

On completion

At the end of six weeks, we encourage you to celebrate, not just graduate. We now work with you to support the steps needed to achieve independent living in the community. This may require a short stay in our transitional accommodation. On leaving, the support can continue as you can still access free counselling in the community. People can stay at Logan House longer than the six weeks, if required.

Our team

Our friendly and professional team has a wide range of life experience and qualifications and is made up of psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, counsellors and an on-site nurse. We can help you access Centrelink and other government, professional and medical services if required.

Admission

We accept referrals but you don’t need to present one. Just give us a call on 1300 727 957 and we will have a chat to you to determine your needs. We accept referrals from other health professionals, services and community and government organisations.

Location

Logan House is located midway between Brisbane and the Gold Coast at 75-87 Kirk Road, Chambers Flat.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Residential Rehabilitation?

Residential treatment is based on the principle that a residential setting free of alcohol and non-prescribed drugs, provides an appropriate place in which to address the underlying causes of dependence.

We offer a 24-hour, staffed, residential treatment program, inclusive of intensive, structured interventions after withdrawal from alcohol or drugs of dependence. Our residential treatment is complemented by a full package of care with pre and post counselling and support services available.

Is This a Detox Program?

No. Logan House is not a detoxification facility. People come to our residential rehabilitation program drug free (other than prescribed medications) and alcohol free. Many residents will have had to participate in a detox program provided by another service before they will be accepted into our programs.

Do I Have to Be Drug Free in the Program?

Yes. You will need to be free from alcohol and illegal drugs to participate in our programs.

What if I am on Methadone?

We do not accept clients who are on methadone.

Can my children or family stay with me or visit?

Logan House does not allow parents in the program to have their children living with them. The program does provide support for family relationships and contact with children and other immediate family members is encouraged.

The Logan House Family Recovery Units are being built on site and when opened later in 2018, parents will be able to access live-in treatment and have their children stay with them.

Can I access other support services during my stay?

Yes, you will be able to access other support services if required. We also offer other treatment programs, such as parenting programs, support groups and counselling for couples or families.

How can I get into Logan House?

First you need to make contact with Logan House by calling 1300 727 957. An intake officer can provide information about our programs and schedule a time for an assessment. Our intake officer will ask a series of questions to understand more about you, your dependence history and which program would best suit you. They will assess your eligibility for our program and discuss the next steps.

How much does it cost?
Although our programs are supported by funding from governments, all residents are required to pay affordable fees for board and lodging by providing a payment from their Centrelink benefit.
Are the services confidential?

Yes. Information collected by Lives Lived Well is confidential.
