Lives Lived Well has expanded its free Non-Residential Rehabilitation Day Program to three more locations: Toowoomba, Mackay and Woolloongabba, providing these communities with more options in alcohol and drug treatment.
The Day Program allows people to participate in a more in-depth “treatment” while remaining at home, which differs from a residential service where there would be a need to “live-in” and stay overnights, making it an accessible option for more people.
The program’s expansion is thanks to additional funding from the Queensland Government.
On Monday 10 June, 2019, Lives Lived Well CEO Mitchell Giles launched the Day Program in Toowoomba at an official event, which also marked the expansion of Lives Lived Well’s Neil Street service space.
Launching the program and opening the expanded space, Mr Giles thanked the State Government for its ongoing support and for making it possible to offer the group-based Day Program in more communities.
“Lives Lived Well’s Day Program offers comparable educational and therapeutic treatment provided at our long-standing residential programs, which means people can now access more comprehensive support but without the need to live-in,” Mr Giles said.
“Participants attend weekdays and return home at the end of each day. This gives people, who are unable to access residential care for whatever reason, a good alternate option.”
Program inquiries can be made by calling Lives Lived Well on 1300 727 957.
The program will be officially launched in Mackay on June 18 and in Woolloongabba on June 21.
