The Glen for Women

The Board at The Glen are passionate about delivering a best practice, high quality, culturally appropriate drug and alcohol residential rehabilitation service for men. We have been doing this for many years now (25 years to be exact).

We’ve always known that there’s a need to offer something similar to women who also suffer from drug and alcohol addiction. The Board at The Glen have identified this as a priority for the 2019 and beyond. We are determined that this ‘culturally appropriate women’s service’ gets set up. We are determined to do this, and to do it well.

Women’s Advisory Group

The Women’s Advisory Group have starting the planning process!

The first two workshops, held on 20 August 2019 and 10 September 2019 at The Glen, covered key topics for the operational model. These include:

  • Intake processes
  • Work programs
  • Leave
  • Transition
  • Partnerships
  • Client characteristics and needs

The operational model workstream is working on the premise that The Glen’s model will work for a women’s centre with some modifications. The next steps are to bring together all the thoughts and ideas into groups and to finalise all the recommendations discussed so far regarding how the centre should operate.
