Launceston City Mission - Missiondale
Missiondale is Tasmania's largest residential rehabilitation service, offering support for those wanting to make positive changes concerning their existing substance use.
Trained staff in the program include pyschologists, support and case workers and a nurse, as well as referral to a range of external support options to help people in all areas of life: - Physical, Emotional, Social, Intellectual, Financial and Spiritual.
As a resident you are provided with a safe environment to explore the possibilities for your future. You will be given support by staff and your peers to do this.
Missiondale is a place where you will be helped to make positive decisions about your future. We want you to embrace a process of personal exploration and lasting recovery.
The program runs through a number of stages. People have the option to continue for as long as they feel necessary to gain the skills and knowledge they need to succeed.
In the early stages, the emphasis is on digging down deep. You will be asked to review things in your life that you may not have considered before - choices, behaviours and attitudes which influence how you see yourself today. As you progress through the stages, more challenges, as well as the tools and support to conquer them, are placed in front of you.
