How can we help you?
We provide a residential rehabilitation service called the Gulgihwen Program. Gulgihwen means “change” in the traditional local language.
Our Program is designed for Aboriginal men aged 18 years + and is intended to provide education and support towards addressing the issues of substance misuse and related harms and to improve health and well-being in a culturally safe, drug and alcohol free environment. We provide on site withdrawal management services for less complex detoxing and aftercare service for up to 6 months after exit.
There is no set program length – it is up to the individual to decide how much time he thinks he needs to work on the things he identifies as being important to his healing. We recommend a minimum stay of 8 weeks to really make any progress. The average stay is around 3 months and there are options for up to 9 months for men addressing complex substance misuse and related issues.
