About this opportunity

Turner River Rehabilitation Centre

Turner River Yaandina’s Turner River Rehabilitation Centre is a 24 bed facility that uses the Therapeutic Community (TC) model for treatment and addiction recovery that includes mental and physical healing.

This centre provides a facility in the Pilbara that allows individuals who have successfully completed a detoxification process from drugs and/or alcohol to recover from their addictions. Turner River is certified against the Standards for Therapeutic Communities in a Residential Care setting and also certified against the Standards for Culturally Secure practice.

Under the TC model residents are required to help each other and work. Leisure activities are based on skill development, team work and the community’s wellbeing. Individually tailored care and support plans are developed for each resident and are underpinned by provision of around the clock 24-hour support.

The centre is open 24 hours – 365 days a years and families are able to visit following a settling in period.
