City Mission provide a variety of Alcohol and Other Drug services:
Serenity House is a Sobering Up and Place of Safety facility located at Sulphur Creek, North West Tasmania.
It is also a place for ‘time-out’, offering communal living under the support and supervision of trained staff. Counselling is available, along with referral to other agencies and follow-up when requested. Time-out is available for people from any part of the state where substance misuse is the primary presenting need for support.
The Missiondale Therapeutic Community (TC) is a 34 bed residential facility located on a 25-acre peaceful rural property in Evandale, Tasmania. The program is made up of six different stages, taking up to 6 months to complete. Residents of all stages live together in shared accommodation (lounges, kitchens, bathrooms – but you will have your own bedroom) to support each other through the program.
Places of Safety
The City Mission's Places of Safety exist to provide support to people over the age of 18 found in public places by Police who are behaving in a manner likely to cause injury to themselves or another person or are incapable of protecting themselves from physical harm. Admission to a Place of Safety can only be obtained by Police referral.
SMART recovery (self-management and recovery training) is a program that offers a chance to work together, to examine and change problem behaviours including drugs, alcohol, gambling, food, internet and others. SMART is a practical and solution focused program using evidence-based tools such as cognitive behavior therapy and motivational tools and techniques. The group is a safe place where you can express yourself freely and respectfully.
