Our Admission Process
We know that making steps for change can be a daunting task that requires courage and strength. Our team of caring staff strive to ensure the admission process is as smooth as possible and are here to support and answer any questions you may have.
All potential residents must be willing to undergo an initial comprehensive assessment to determine if they are suited to a recovery house environment.
We prioritise those who have already made some effort to seek treatment, particularly those who have completed or are completing rehabilitation programs and are wanting to practice sober living in a more domestic environment, but with structured support.
Our 8 week Residential Recovery Program includes:
Additional services can be arranged during your stay at extra cost, including:
We offer several packages to enable you to access the exact combination of services and activities you need.

The key to successful recovery is an individual’s desire for recovery, that’s why at Riverina Recovery House we only accept residents who are:
Couples are not eligible, nor are people under court orders to attend treatment, as participation has to be entirely voluntary.

For many people, ceasing regular use of drugs and alcohol is generally not the core issue requiring treatment. Many people can and do stop using for a period of time on their own if sufficiently motivated, or when supply of preferred substances ceases or is limited. What proves to be difficult is continued and sustained abstinence.
Most people use substances to avoid something or as an answer to a problem, so when they stop using substances, they are faced with exactly what they were trying to avoid in the first place. These can be unbearable thoughts, feelings, fears, anxieties, and/or even difficult situations they need to face. Without guidance and support, unresolved issues can be overwhelming and distressing which can push you to return to substance use.
The Riverina Recovery House was established to address this very need for support and guidance at the early stages of recovery. By bringing together expert, caring clinicians within the safety of a nurturing environment, we are able to optimise every valuable opportunity for our clients to identify and address their underlying issues.
Our residents are assisted to establish a healthy, positive routine from the outset, so resilience and tolerance can be built and strengthened, increasing your chance of successful recovery.
We aim to help you build confidence so you can face difficulties, reconcile your behaviour with your goals, promote integration with yourself and build stronger and more authentic relationships and connections with others.
At the Riverina Recovery House, you will:
During your stay, you will be encouraged to identify and access a range of supports in the community, such as allied health or complementary health practitioners, fitness and skill building activities, and importantly you’ll be encouraged to take advantage of all the wonderful resources, sights and services available in the Riverina region.
We also expect residents to attend regular addiction support meetings (such as 12 step) or to access equivalent support. Our aim is for our residents to be personally responsible for their own recovery.
The longer you stay, the more you will be encouraged to build connections with others through contributing (in any way you can) to the local community.
Q: How long can I stay for?
A: Your length of stay depends where you are at with your recovery and is determined upon admission. We recommend a minimum stay of 8 weeks taking into account whether you are currently completing or have recently completed treatment; the type of treatment you have completed or are completing, and what you hope to achieve.
A longer-term stay can also easily be negotiated and arranged should this be beneficial to your recovery. Usually though, you only need to commit to a minimum period (this will be determined during assessment) with extensions negotiated as required.
