Parents can come and stay with their children while participating in our program
Live-in and recover
In a peaceful, rural area south of Brisbane, one-parent or two-parent families can receive residential alcohol and drug support at our newly-built Logan House Family Recovery Units, which accommodates parents with young children. The evidence-based program is delivered in a safe and drug-free environment and aims to provide strategies for parents to:
- reduce substance use
- manage life pressures
- develop goals
- learn parenting and life skills
- and prevent relapse, towards supporting lives free from the harms of drugs or alcohol.
How long is the program?
The live-in program is delivered over a three-month period, in six-week cycles.
Who can stay?
The program supports parents with children under the age of 10. Units can accommodate parents with two children, though families with three children can be considered on a needs’ basis.
Before entering our units, families will be able to access free support to help them get ready for residential treatment.
Families will be welcomed and settled in. Parents will meet their treatment facilitator who will seek to understand their needs and treatment goals and will work with them throughout their program in recovery. Children will be provided appropriate supervised care and will have access to play equipment.
Our care is holistic, tailored to individual needs and education-based. It will involve individual counselling and support and group work. Parents are required to remain drug-free throughout and will be provided with support to quit smoking. Research shows that people who give up smoking do better overall in their recovery.
Families will be provided with free support to help with a smooth transition back into the community after completing the program. They can access ongoing free community counselling through our Beenleigh or Gold Coast hubs.
Our friendly and professional team has a wide range of life experience and qualifications and is made up of an alcohol and drug senior practitioner, two treatment facilitators and specialist support workers. The service will be supported 24/7 with an overnight support worker available. Parents will also benefit from the skills and experience on site at Logan House.
We can help parents access Centrelink and other government, professional and medical services if required.
How much does it cost?
You are required to pay some money towards your stay, which depends on the type of benefit or payment you receive from Centrelink. Usually, the cost amounts to 85 per cent of your Centrelink benefit.
We accept referrals, but you don’t need to present one. Just give us a call on 1300 727 957 and we can have a chat to determine your needs. We accept referrals from other health professionals, services and community and government organisations.
Logan House Family Recovery Units are located on the same site as Logan House, situated midway between Brisbane and the Gold Coast at 75-87 Kirk Road, Chambers Flat.
