The Glen Centre is an Aboriginal Community Controlled Drug and Alcohol Residential Rehabilitation Centre for men and women across two sites at Chittaway Point & Wyong Creek on the Central Coast of NSW. The Glen has worked with over 3,500 clients over the past 27 years. The National accreditation body QIP recently recognised The Glen as one of the most successful and well-run Drug and Alcohol rehabilitation programs in Australia, having set a national record for quality standards.
Seeing the pain and suffering in the community at the hands of drug and alcohol addiction was the motivation for founding The Glen. To this day, we are committed to keeping men and women, Indigenous and non-indigenous, out of the criminal justice system and in treatment for the drug and alcohol addiction that led to their offending behaviours.
The Glen’s program is designed to treat a client in a holistic manner by addressing all of their issues. This means that we treat the person as a whole (spiritually, mentally and physically). We don’t just treat their addiction, we also look at things in their life 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.
We are proud to be an organisation that is helping to break down the barriers between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians and working towards reconciliation. We acknowledge that while Indigenous Australians are struggling with drug and alcohol abuse issues, it is a problem in all parts of modern Australian society. Addiction does not discriminate based on colour or anything else.
