Operating in the ACT for over 35 years, Karralika Programs Inc. supports the Canberra community and surrounding NSW regions.

We offer residential care as well as community-based treatment. The Karralika Therapeutic Community offers evidence-based treatment and rehabilitative care for people with alcohol and other drug dependencies, using a therapeutic community (TC) approach to treatment. We provide short and long stay adult and family programs allowing young children up to the age of 12 to accompany their parents through treatment We work with the family to develop positive parent/child/family relationships. We also operate the Nexus Program (incorporating the Men’s Halfway House Program and After-care Program) which offers case management, support, education and referral for single men. All clients leaving our programs have access to ongoing support through outreach.

Karralika Programs works in partnership with ACT Corrective Services to operate the Solaris Therapeutic Community, a voluntary program for adult males in the Alexander Maconochie Centre who have been affected by alcohol and other drug use and related dependencies using the therapeutic community approach to treatment.

We are able to support people with complex needs associated with their alcohol and drug dependence. Residents with low literacy, Acquired Brain Injury or Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder are supported with additional resources and tools to help them participate effectively in the program. Adults with low to moderate mental health conditions who are, or can be stable on medication are also able to participate in our programs.
