Looking to kick-start your recovery? Wyla offers live-in intensive detox to residential recovery, all under the same roof!
Wyla Residential Services is a voluntary medical detoxification and rehabilitation service.
Wyla provides a safe environment to withdraw from alcohol and/or other drugs supporting up to 8 clients, as well as a 20-bed residential unit for people who need a structured live-in environment and have completed the Wyla detox program or have been transferred from another detox unit.
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 and delivered by a multidisciplinary team of Drug and Alcohol Workers, Registered Nurses, Caseworkers, Senior Mental Health Practitioners, a Continuing Care Caseworker, and a General Practitioner.
While staying with us in a drug-free, non-smoking 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.
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 a multidisciplinary team of Drug and Alcohol Workers, Registered Nurses, Caseworkers, Senior Mental Health Practitioners, a Continuing Care Caseworker, and a General Practitioner.
You will be welcomed by staff and allocated a room, upon arrival to Wyla, and you will undergo a comprehensive assessment completed by a Registered Nurse and a General Practitioner. Your withdrawal regime/treatment plan will be tailored around your individual circumstances. 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, three 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 (NRT) patches.
If clients wish to use other forms of NRT e.g., Inhalator and chewing gum this will be purchased at the clients expense. Please note, due to the alcohol content in NRT sprays we do not allow this form of NRT.
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. All other phone calls are at the discretion of your case-worker.
Wyla is located at Building 16, Canobolas Drive, Bloomfield Campus, Forest Road in Orange, New South Wales.
