The Program

The Glen provides residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation.

The Glen offers a long-term residential program based on the twelve step programs of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. We have group counselling, one to one counselling and work programs, in which all clients are expected to participate. Clients also attend outside meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, usually of an evening.

The cost is Newstart $455 per fortnight, DSP $574 per fortnight OR Youth Allowance $420 per fortnight, Board and Lodging. There is an initial fee of $60.00 which is the cost of a urine analysis test. If alcohol or other mind-altering drugs are present in the urine when the client presents for admission, admission will be refused. Clients are entitled to rent assistance from Centrelink.

The program at The Glen is a 12 week program with the opportunity to apply for transition house and stay longer.

The Glen offers a safe environment for those people who wish to do something positive about their addictions. We are a Drug and Alcohol free zone. The Glen welcomes all men over the age of eighteen who feel that they could benefit from our program.

This aims to equip the clients to live a full life free of alcohol or mind altering drugs. The basic philosophy of the program is based on the Twelve Steps of AA. It is supplemented by group work, individual counseling, physical work and exercise. A feature of the program is the fellowship of other recovering addicts and the mutual support this generates.
