Funded Triple Care Farm drug and alcohol treatment centre

Sir David Martin Foundation is the major funder of Mission Australia’s Triple Care Farm, a unique, holistic treatment centre which gives vulnerable young Australians, aged 16-24, a safe place to get well and prepare for new opportunities.

Philanthropy has enabled an innovative, successful model of treatment for young people with drug and alcohol addiction. The model features three core components: withdrawal, rehabilitation and aftercare.

If you are an Australian aged between 16 and 24 who has problematic drug and alcohol use:

Withdrawal support

The Withdrawal detox facility provides young people with the best opportunity to break free from the cycle of addiction in a supportive, effective environment.

Residential rehabilitation

Young people receive treatment and counselling, a safe home for now, learn living skills and have access to vocational and educational training, sport and recreation.

Aftercare

Six months of Aftercare with a dedicated youth worker is provided to all graduates. This is a critical part of the program supporting a young person as they move back into the community and start implementing everything they have learned in the Withdrawal and Rehabilitation Programs.

Through the Youth Network we are able to offer Aftercare at sites in East Perth, Dubbo and Batemans Bay, as well as at Triple Care Farm in Robertson, NSW.
