Contacting your loved one at The Glen

If your family member or a friend is participating in The Glen program, stay up to date by visiting The Glen Facebook page, our Instagram page or signing up to our newsletter.

To support our clients’ journey of recovery, we have guidelines covering the use of mobile phones, leave, family contact and visits, depending on how long the client has been part of the program.

The program includes a weekly trip to the local shopping centre, and to Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings.

We appreciate your support in making sure that clients don’t treat these trips as a chance to  catch up with family and friends.
