• Boosting drug and alcohol rehabilitation services for parents with young children
• The Coalition Government and Lives Lived Well jointly invest $1.97 million in new family recovery units at Logan
More parents with young children will be able to access vital drug and alcohol rehabilitation services with the construction of new family recovery units at Logan House in Brisbane’s south.
Minister for Regional Development Fiona Nash said the Coalition Government would invest $986,000 in the project under round three of the National Stronger Regions Fund.
“It’s sometimes overlooked that parents with young children require accommodation with their children to stay in while they can get back on their feet,” Minister Nash said.
Lives Lived Well Chief Executive Officer Mitchell Giles said he was excited about the project and what it meant for families in the wider Logan area.
“Parents who need to access our programs often find it difficult to do so as they struggle to provide for their families while in treatment,” Mr Giles said.
“By offering families a safe housing option, parents can receive the treatment and support they need, leading to a better future outcome for the entire family.”
Lives Lived Well runs rehabilitation treatment programs for people aged over 18 at Logan House in Brisbane’s south, as well as providing a range of other support services across Queensland for people experiencing problems with alcohol, drugs and mental health.
