At Logan House, we believe that with the right care and support, people can change their lives
Live-in and recover
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 drug-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.

Logan House has started accepting people who are engaged in stabilised Opioid Replacement Therapy. Download our ORT Logan House Brochure 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 live-in program is offered over six to 12 weeks, with length of stay dependent upon a person’s need and circumstances. As part of a package of treatment, you can access:
- six weeks to three months live-in treatment
- free before and after service support
- transitional accommodation
- free community-based counselling and support.
Who can stay?
The program supports people over 18 years.
As soon as you make contact with us, you will be able to access support, as you can see one of our counsellors in the community. This free counselling can help you prepare for entering our live-in program.
You will be welcomed and settled in, before meeting your treatment facilitator who is honoured to work with you and guide you through the program. With patience and curiosity, your facilitator will seek to understand your needs and treatment goals and work with you to tailor a plan to help get your life back in line with your potential.
We believe in delivering a program of respect that you can feel proud to be part of. 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. Support doesn’t stop when you leave Logan House, with transitional and community teams in place to provide ongoing aftercare.
Our friendly and professional team has a wide range of life experience and qualifications and is made up of psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, counsellors and an on-site nurse. We can help you 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 fortnightly Centrelink benefit. 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. This amounts to $2000 upfront.
We accept referrals but you don’t need to present one. Just give us a call on 1300 727 957 and we will have a chat to you to determine your needs. If you leave a message, we will call you back asap. We also accept online provider referrals from other health professionals, services and community and government organisations or they can fax referrals to 07 5576 2512.
Or you can self-refer online.
You need to be 18 years or over to apply.
Once we receive your referral (online, by fax or over the phone), the Pre-Treatment Team will make contact with you within 2-3 business days to schedule an assessment.
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 75-87 Kirk Road, Chambers Flat.
Can my family stay in contact?
During your stay, you will have regular 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. Visitors are welcome on the weekend between visiting hours and you may take a leave day from your second weekend in treatment on Saturdays and/or Sundays. Logan House residents are also able to access overnight leave on weekends.
Please note, we cannot provide any information to family members calling to inquire about your treatment due to privacy requirements. If you wish us to provide them with information, we will need your consent to authorise this.
