The Glen program

“I have taken full advantage of all of the counselling at The Glen, including the grief and trauma therapy, parent programs and the relationships counselling.  I have learnt that vulnerability is the key to serenity.”


The 12-week residential program includes group and one-on-one counselling, support groups and skills building programs. You are expected to join each session that are part of the core program. You can also attend other wellbeing and self-help sessions outside of the core program.

Our program is designed to support you with:

  • Grief and trauma
  • Relationships
  • Gambling
  • Anger management and more.

We also take you to attend Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meetings.

Through The Glen program, you can also learn a range of practical skills to set you up for life. This includes:

  • Life skills like cooking, gardening, cleaning, maintaining a home and more
  • Creating good habits in exercise and wellbeing
  • Handling personal finance
  • Parenting
  • Community work and education.

We also have a transition program for men after the initial 12-week rehab program. We are hoping to offer similar support to women soon.

The rehab program at The Glen is based on the Aboriginal Drug and Alcohol Residential Rehabilitation Network (ADARRN) model of care.
