Looking to kick-start your recovery? Wyla offers detox to recovery, all under the same roof!

Wyla (previously know as the Lyndon Withdrawal Unit / Wattlegrove Rehab) is a voluntary residential medical detoxification service and rehabilitation facility. Wyla is a safe environment to withdraw from alcohol and/or other drugs, as well as a 16 bed residential unit for clients who need a structured live-in environment and have completed their detox program.

In the historic Bloomfield Hospital Campus just outside Orange in Central NSW, Wyla 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 drug-free environment, you will undertake an evidence-based live-in program, which provides strategies to help you:

  • reduce substance use
  • manage life challenges
  • develop goals
  • and prevent relapse, towards supporting lives free from the harms of drugs or alcohol.

Drug & Alcohol Rehab for people with an acquired brain injury or intellectual disabilities

Support for people with brain injuries, intellectual disabilities and other cognitive impairments is a particular focus of the Wyla residential rehabilitation program. We recognise drug and alcohol services and treatment facilities for this group are limited. Therefore, specific strategies have been developed in conjunction with an advisory group of national and international experts in the field.

How long is the program?

The usual length of stay is about 3 months in rehab, dependent on the resident’s circumstances and individual progression. As part of the package, you can access:

  • a 16-bed service
  • individual counselling
  • group sessions
  • drug and alcohol education
  • practical living skills, social, recreational and vocations programs
  • structured daily routines
  • mindfulness meditation
  • aftercare support.
Who can stay?

Wyla caters for both men and women from 18 years of age. 

Our program

We believe in residents driving their own treatment and supporting them to develop their own case plans, set realistic goals, and implement action plans relevant to their own life circumstances. Our rehabilitation program also includes:

  • a structured daily routine
  • social, recreational and vocational programs
  • mindfulness meditation
  • a virtues program
  • drug and alcohol education sessions.

A key focus is establishing and practicing a drug and alcohol free routine in preparation for going home. Attendance at local AA/NA meetings is facilitated for those who wish to attend. The program is designed to be suitable for people with cognitive impairments by including frequent repetition of elements, roleplay and practice of skills including problem solving and communication, and emotional regulation strategies.

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.


Just give us a call on (02) 6361 2300 and we will have a chat to you to determine if our service is the right option for you. We accept referrals from other health professionals, services and community and government organisations.

You will need to be over 18 to apply.


Wyla is located at Building 16, Canobolas Drive, Bloomfield Campus, Forest Road in Orange, New South Wales.
