How Can We Help?

We run a range of community and residential programs across QLD and NSW, helping thousands of people each year deal with alcohol and drug challenges and move forward in life.

All of our services are delivered professionally, and in confidence. Our support is free, though our residential services incur a small charge.

Check out our program areas below and see if you can find one that suits your needs. If not, give us a call on 1300 727 957 and we can discuss how we can best help out.



Are alcohol or drugs becoming a problem? We can help with free in-person or phone/online counselling for adults. Learn more about counselling for alcohol and other drugs >

Live-In & Recover

Our residential rehabilitation services across QLD and NSW offer affordable live-in programs for people experiencing serious problems with drugs and alcohol. View our rehabilitation centres >

Withdrawal Support

A team of professional counsellors and a registered nurse can help guide you through the withdrawal process with holistic care, with facilities purposely designed to provide a safe, welcoming environment for supported day recovery. Learn about our withdrawal services >


It’s not possible for everyone to reach our services: you may live too far away, transport may be an issue or you may feel more comfortable meeting in a location where you feel safe and at home. Our outreach services mean we can come to you. See what Outreach programs are available >

Day and Group Programs

It’s not possible for everyone to engage in residential recovery programs, or live-in withdrawal support. Therefore, our day and group programs provide holistic support during the week. View our Day programs >

Indigenous Programs

We acknowledge and pay respect to the people and their land that we connect with, and we work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to help them overcome drug and alcohol problems and bring about a sense of wellbeing. View our First Nations programs >

Support for Families

Concerned about a loved one who has a problem with alcohol or drugs? It could be your parent, sibling, child, partner, or friend. We have a range of programs that can provide you with information and tools to better support your loved one and cope with their recovery. Learn about the support we offer for families >

Youth/Young Adult

Drugs or alcohol starting to take hold? We can help. Young people can start to experiment with alcohol and drugs, while young adults can start to experience more serious problems with drinking and drug taking. Our staff are specially trained and experienced to help you work out what’s going on, whatever stage you’re at. View our programs for young people here >

Diversion Programs

We believe passionately that people can change. We work with Queensland Police, courts and prisons to provide assessments, counselling and support to help offenders address their drug and alcohol problems. These programs only work with people referred to us through the justice system. You cannot self-refer. Find out more about our diversion programs >

Medical Services

A range of specialist services are all under one roof at the Lives Lived Well Specialist Centre on the Gold Coast. Our centre is a general medical practice and a specialist centre with GP services and on-site psychologists and psychiatrists. People who have a range of health care needs can avoid the run around and hassle of visiting many different centres. Visit our Specialist Centre page >
