At Logan House, we aim to walk alongside, listening with respect, curiosity and acceptance
In a peaceful, rural area south of Brisbane, Logan House offers a residential alcohol and drug treatment program, which is part of a continuous package of care. While staying with us in a safe and alcohol-free, drug-free and smoke-free environment, you will undertake an evidence-based, flexible program, which provides strategies to help you:
- reduce substance use
- manage life challenges
- develop goals
- learn parenting skills, if needed
- and prevent relapse, towards supporting lives free from the harms of drugs or alcohol.
Our professional and qualified team is made up of psychologists, social workers, counsellors, and an on-site nurse, allowing us to offer a whole package of care.
Logan House has started accepting people who are engaged in stabilised Opioid Replacement Therapy. Contact our intake team at [email protected] for information about our ORT program.
Here are some questions you may have around our Logan House residential treatment program:
How long is the program?
The program is delivered over six-week cycles, with the flexibility to be extended up to three months depending on your individual recovery. You can receive support from the moment you contact us, until you are fully settled back into the community. That’s because you can access our services before, during and after your stay.
Who can stay?
The program supports people over 18 years.
Before you enter Logan House you can see a Lives Lived Well cousellor in the community and get immediate support. As Logan House is part of Lives Lived Well, you can access any of the Lives Lived Well services prior to coming to stay with us. We will also help you prepare to enter residential treatment.
We know entering residential treatment is a big step. From day one, we will aim to make you feel welcome and understood, as we get to know you and your needs. To begin with, you will be introduced to a treatment facilitator who will work with you to tailor a range of supports to match your needs.
We see it as our role to create a safe, supportive and structured environment that inspires genuine and lasting change. Our residential treatment program aims to capture best practice and deliver quality care with professional facilitators.
You will receive one-to-one counselling in which you can set goals, ask questions and guide your treatment. We bring empathy and collaboration to our approach, believing you are the ultimate decision-maker in your future. We also take a “community” approach to treatment, upholding the values of integrity, trust, leadership and accountability.
You will be encouraged to participate in community living and take on daily tasks and responsibilities. Here you can learn life skills, build confidence and gain insight into how you relate to others… always in a supportive environment. We work closely with other services in the areas of mental, oral, sexual and general health, Centrelink and legal support.
As you move through the program, you will meet regularly with your treatment facilitator to review and adapt your treatment over time.
Our care is holistic, tailored to individual needs and education-based. The program takes a harm-minimisation approach and applies a community environment of learning and support as well as individual counselling. Residents 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.
Completing a drug and alcohol residential program is an achievement but only one step on a longer journey. Following that, we will work with you to support the steps needed to achieve independent living in the community. This may require a short stay in our transitional accommodation. You can also access free, ongoing counselling in the community. We can also help link you with other services that you may need, such as education, childcare and employment. Support doesn’t stop when you leave Logan House, with transitional and community teams in place to provide ongoing aftercare.
How much does it cost?
We aim to provide accessible and affordable residential treatment. You are required to pay some money towards your stay, usually a portion of your Centrelink payment. The amount depends on the type of payment or benefit you receive. There is also an upfront admission fee (which includes your first two weeks of treatment and a medication levy). If self-funding (not receiving Centrelink benefits), you will be required to pay for your full six-week cycle treatment in advance.
Admission and referrals
You don’t need a GP referral. You can self-refer through our website here. If you have limited access to the internet or would prefer to speak to us to request a referral, please phone the Contact Team on 1300 727 957.
We also accept online provider referrals from other health professionals, services and community and government organisations or they can fax referrals to 07 5546 8223.
Admission timeframes vary. Be assured, you will be supported by our Pre-Treatment Team until you can be admitted into our live-in service. Once your referral is received, your support begins.
Logan House is located midway between Brisbane and the Gold Coast at 75 Kirk Road, Chambers Flat.
Can my family stay in contact?
During your stay, you will have scheduled access to your mobile phone in a dedicated session, at which time you can call your family. You can also send and receive letters. Phone messages can be left at reception for you. Children (infants and children only) can arrange to visit parents staying at Logan House on weekdays between business hours. These visits need to be approved by the clinical team prior to the visit occurring and all children must be accompanied by an adult.
Please note, due to privacy requirements, we cannot provide any information to family members calling to inquire about your treatment. Clients need to provide consent if you wish us to provide family members with information.
Logan House is a place of tranquility. Here, we believe in giving people second, third and fourth chances… as you set out to rebuild your life.
