We’re still here for you – COVID-19 Response
On Tuesday 24 March, Wyla was temporarily closed and is not currently accepting new admissions. Alternative recovery support through telephone and online services remains available for new and current clients and we welcome your enquiry about these options.
Looking to kick-start your recovery? Wyla offers live-in intensive detox to residential 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.
Wyla caters for both men and women from 18 years of age suffering from substance misuse.
How long is the process?
The withdrawal process can last between 6 to 14 days, depending on the person’s situation. Wyla has medical and support staff on site 24 hours a day with drug and alcohol workers, case workers, registered nurses, and a mental health liaison worker on hand to deliver the program.
You will be welcomed by staff and allocated a room, once all paperwork and admission is completed by yourself and the registered nurse. You will then be assessed by a doctor, and they will develop medication regimes. After a night’s rest you will begin participating in the weekly program’s group work and activities.
We aim to create a supportive environment. The daily schedule includes a house meeting, two educational groups plus activities. Our primary objective is to support people with their detox and to empower them to make informed decisions about their substance use throughout their stay.
How much does it cost?
You are required to pay some money towards your stay in the withdrawal and detox unit. You will not need to pay for withdrawal medications other than pharmacotherapy. As Wyla is a smoke-free facility, we do offer nicotine replacement therapy free of charge.
Visitation / Contact during the program
Unfortunately visitors are not permitted in the Wyla withdrawal and detox unit; however, family and friends can call to check on your progress, within the consent guidelines you have agreed to.
On admission you will be able to make one personal phone call on admission to let people know you have arrived. You will also be allowed to make one personal phone call on discharge. Any and all other phone calls are at the discretion of your case worker.
