​With the right support, people can change their lives.

For over 40 years, Lives Lived Well has been supporting people to live their lives well.

We are a not-for-profit healthcare provider that offers evidence-based services across Queensland, New South Wales and South Australia. We specialise in supporting people with concerns related to:

  • alcohol and other drugs (AOD)
  • mental health
  • transitioning from corrective services
  • veterans’ wellbeing
  • gambling.

With heartfelt dedication, we work with individuals to craft personalised plans, reduce harm, nurture recovery, and inspire positive and lasting change.  We bring experience, empathy, and a judgement-free approach to every person’s journey, recognising that life is complex. Side by side, we unlock capacity for change, offering compassionate, person-centred support grounded in evidence-based clinical practices.


Driving innovation and impact through research and partnerships

At Lives Lived Well, we are committed to fostering innovation and driving tangible impact through pioneering research and strategic partnerships.

In partnership with The University of Queensland, we conduct cutting-edge research in AOD treatment, ensuring that our interventions are effective and evidence-based. This commitment reflects our core belief that with the right support, people can change their lives.

At the centre of our efforts is the invaluable support from our generous funders, including various government bodies. We are grateful for their support, and through close collaboration, we tailor our services to align with their priorities and address the unique needs of the communities we work in.


Living our values

At Lives Lived Well, our values provide a foundation for how we work. We embody them, striving to deliver our best each day – for our colleagues, for our clients, and for the communities we serve.

We are humble, human and full of hope. We listen and learn with respect and no judgement, believing in people and dreaming big about what’s possible.

We show up and share. We deliver on our promises and demonstrate our commitment through actions, not just words.

We ask why not and what’s next? Embracing evidence and innovation, we remain curious and open to new ideas.

We leave a positive wake. Recognising the significance of every interaction, we focus on outcomes, both big and small.
