The Following is a list of Therapeutic Communities in Australia and New Zealand.
Therapeutic Communities (T.C’s ) all provide residential treatment for a whole raft of addictions. Many of these places will have waiting lists, but if people persevere and do all that is required of them, then they will get admission to one of these places. The one essential is that they follow the instructions of the Admissions person/counsellor. For instance, when the person on the end of the phone asks a client to phone each Wednesday at 9 A.M., it is imperative that they do it or they will lose the place. Rehabs these days are very stretched, and they look for people that are willing to take responsibility for themselves by having them follow through on initial enquiries.

If you are having problems with alcohol and/or drugs then remember, your recovery is ultimately up to you. Treatment is discovery, and the rest of your life is your recovery. Rehabs provide the kick start, but you must show that you are willing to put in the footwork and do the rest. For instance, if you do not take the imitative to go to an AA or an AA meeting or follow through in any other way with your recovery, just because you don’t feel like it, then you must question what you think a few weeks or months are going to do for you in a rehab.

Anyone can stop using in a rehab…it is rejoining society and living life on life’s terms that is the important thing.
