Our Treatment Philosophy

The Glen’s program is designed to address a client’s issues by treating them in a holistic manner. This means treating the person as a whole (spiritually, mentally and physically). It also means that we don’t just treat their addiction, but look at the things that may be causing the addictive behaviours. Our program is about empowering people to take control of their lives, to live a good fun life and to become active members of their families and the community as a whole.

The Glen’s program is based on Indigenous values and spirituality with a heavy emphasis on the individual and the consequences of the individual’s choices. It includes group sessions, one-to-one counselling, work programs, sport and self-help meetings.

Our programs

During the first 12 weeks, clients are offered group work, individual counselling, case management, educational support, work programs, sporting activities, acupuncture and various specialised counselling services such as grief and trauma, financial, gambling, parenting and anger management.

After the first 12 weeks, clients may move into the transition program where they are supported to obtain qualifications, build work skills, reconnect with their families and to find suitable employment and housing. Click here for more information about the transition program

We also provide outreach support post-treatment and deliver drug and alcohol education talks in the community.
