Lives Lived Well welcomes opportunity to run Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation recovery centre in Rockhampton
Lives Lived Well is pleased to be given the opportunity by the State Government to deliver an evidence-informed alcohol and drug treatment program out of a new rehabilitation recovery centre to open in Rockhampton in 2021.
Lives Lived Well CEO Mitchell Giles said, “we are very grateful to the government for the opportunity to provide much needed services for people and families impacted by drugs and alcohol”.
Lives Lived Well has been providing free alcohol and drug counselling and support in Rockhampton for about five years and group programs for over two years.
“We welcome the opportunity to provide a comprehensive residential service, including a detox and family supports, in the region,” Mr Giles said, “and we look forward to also providing a non-residential day program for young people down to the age of 12 years”.
“Of the 476 people we supported through our alcohol and drug counselling in Central Queensland last financial year, 39.4% named methamphetamines (ICE) as their primary drug of concern. This was followed by alcohol (27.3%) and cannabis (24%).
“Through residential care and the day program, people can gain insights into their substance use and develop practical tools to minimise harm, build their lives and reduce the likelihood of relapse.”
Lives Lived Well also delivers residential treatment in Queensland’s Cairns, Gold Coast and Logan and Orange in NSW.
