“Providing effective recovery for individuals and families affected by co-occurring alcohol, other drug, and mental health problems “
Goldbridge Rehabilitation Services (Goldbridge) is a community based organisation, established in 1988 to provide best practice residential and non-residential drug, alcohol and mental health recovery services.
Goldbridge is located in Southport on the Gold Coast and provides seven programs:
• Intake and Assessment
• Residential Therapeutic Community
• Adventure Therapy
• Drug Court
• Family Support Service
• Transition to Community
• After Care/Continuing Care support.
The residential program runs for a nominal period of six (6) months and has a capacity to assist 28 individuals. People need to have completed detoxification prior to entering the program. The target group is adults 21 to 65 years who are affected by co-occurring alcohol, other drug and mental health problems. Residents have an option after completing the residential program to continue with Goldbridge in the Transition program, a semi-structured program in the community for a nominal period of six (6) months.
Goldbridge uses the Therapeutic Community (TC) approach towards treatment and recovery, and is the principle means for promoting personal change through self-help and mutual support. Both residents and staff participate in the management and operation of the community through Group Therapy, Experiential Learning, Psych- Education Groups and Work Crews. Goldbridge is a member of the Australasian Therapeutic Communities Association.
