Temporary service changes due to COVID-19

About LLW – Wunya

Wunya delivers a comprehensive residential rehabilitation treatment program for people experiencing problems with alcohol and drugs.

The program offers participants an opportunity to learn recovery strategies such as, how to:

  • reduce or abstain from substance use
  • manage life challenges
  • strengthen coping strategies
  • develop functional goals
  • make more positive choices
  • live a healthier life.

The program is delivered over six weeks, with length of stay negotiated dependent upon a person’s need and circumstances. The Wunya program can be just one part of your recovery plan, which can also include Lives Lived Well’s day withdrawal program, community-based counselling or day rehabilitation program.

Programs

Wunya offers a six-week residential treatment program where participants receive one-on-one counselling and set goals to guide treatment. Residents are encouraged to participate in community living and take on daily tasks and responsibilities. The aim is to build life skills, confidence and gain insight into relationships with others, always within an environment of support.

As people move through the program, they have regular meetings with treatment facilitators and can review and adapt their treatment plan in line with progress.

Upon completion of the program, participants can continue to receive ongoing support by accessing LLW’s free community-based counselling services in nearby Morayfield.
