New Cairns office is our one-stop-shop for support

All the cairns teams in front of new building

Our Cairns team are providing intake and assessment, withdrawal support and community re-entry services.

We have a new service hub in Cairns, providing a central place for people to access withdrawal support, intake and assessment for residential treatment at Shanty Creek, and community re-entry support services for people leaving correctional services.

Moving to larger premises to host this hub, the new building also features two two-bedroom units, which are available to people transitioning into and out of our services.

The Member for Leichhardt, Warren Entsch, recently joined our CEO, Mitchell Giles, for the official opening of the new building at 139 Sheridan St, Cairns.

This is the first time we’ve been able to offer our clients transitional housing in Cairns. The units provide safe and secure accommodation for people while they participate in our withdrawal day program or prepare to return to country after completing residential treatment at nearby Shanty Creek.

If you’re in Cairns please pop in and say hello to our team. You can’t miss our building – it’s the one with bright green and blue tiles on the front!

Growing need for support service in Charters Towers region

Lives Lived Well has been featured in an article written by The Northern Miner, the local newspaper of Charters Towers – see the article below. Lives Lived Well’s Far North Queensland manager Rachael Ham commented in the article, saying that there is a rising number of young people with issues around early psychosis resulting from the use of methamphetamines.

Concerns about this rising methamphetamine, particularly ice, use in the region are growing.

Currently Lives Lived Well provides face-to-face counselling in Charters Towers every Tuesday at Prospect Community Services, Powell Lane and offers phone support for the wider region during business hours on 0448 609 559 or 1300 727 957.
