At Wunya, we believe that with the right care and support, people can change their lives
Live-in and recover
At Caboolture, north of Brisbane, we are about to open a new 20-bed recovery centre, which will deliver a comprehensive, residential rehabilitation treatment program for people experiencing problems with alcohol and drugs.
Due to open on December 30, 2019 the program will offer participants an opportunity to learn recovery strategies such as, how to:
- reduce or abstain from substance use
- manage life challenges
- strengthen coping strategies
- develop functional goals
- make more positive choices
- live a healthier life
- and prevent relapse, towards supporting lives free from the harms of drugs or alcohol.
How long is the program?
The live-in program is offered over six (6) to twelve (12) weeks, with length of stay dependent upon a person’s need and circumstances. The Wunya program can be just one part of your recovery plan, which can also include Lives Lived Well’s day withdrawal program, community-based counselling or day rehabilitation program.
Who can stay?
How much does it cost?
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.
Or you can self-refer online.
You need to be aged over 18 to apply.
Once we receive your referral (online, by fax or over the phone), we will get in contact with you to organise an assessment.
Can my family stay in contact?
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.
