Wyla (formerly Wattlegrove)
Live-in Drug & Alcohol Rehab
Wattlegrove Rehabilitation Service has moved location and with the move has come a name change.
Now known as “Wyla”, the rehabilitation service can still be found within the Bloomfield Hospital Campus, however it is now located at Building 31, Canobolas Drive, co-locating with our withdrawal service.
Wyla is a 16-bed residential unit available to those who require a structured live-in environment and have completed a detox program. The usual length of stay is about 3 months though it depends on the resident’s progress.
Drug & Alcohol Rehab for Brain Injured Clients or those with Intellectual Disabilities
Support for people with brain injuries, intellectual disabilities and other cognitive impairments is a particular focus of the Wyla program. We recognise drug and alcohol services and treatment facilities for this group are limited and so specific strategies have been developed in conjunction with an advisory group of national and international experts in the field.
Residential Drug & Alcohol Rehabilitation Services
We believe in residents driving their own treatment and support them to develop their own case plans, set realistic goals and implement action plans relevant to their own life circumstances.
Our program also includes:
- a structured daily routine
- social, recreational and vocational programs
- mindfulness meditation
- a virtues program
- and drug and alcohol education sessions.
A key focus is establishing and practicing a drug and alcohol free routine in preparation for going home. Attendance at local AA/NA meetings is facilitated for those who wish to attend. The program is designed to be suitable for people with cognitive impairments by including frequent repetition of elements, roleplay and practice of skills including problem solving and communication; and emotional regulation strategies.
