Cyrenian House has been delivering specialist alcohol and other drug (AOD) treatment services to Western Australian communities for over 37 years.
Cyrenian House continues to grow and adapt to meet changing community needs and our specialist AOD treatment services continue to diversify and grow accordingly. The size of the organisation has grown immensely and we now provide treatment options to communities south of Perth through to communities in the Kimberley region of Western Australia ensuring that more people across the State can benefit from our high quality, effective treatment services.
We understand that problematic AOD use impacts on all Western Australians and frequently results in significant health, social and economic costs to the community.
We seek to prevent and reduce AOD related harm and provide effective services involving prevention, treatment and education to Western Australians. To serve this aim, we keep abreast of changing consumer needs and leading AOD research and incorporate evidence-based practice into our service provision.
Our services include four Therapeutic Communities (TC’s), two Low Medical Withdrawal Units, a Residential Women and Children’s Program, a purpose built childcare centre, an Integrated Community Alcohol and Drug Service, a regional AOD outreach service in partnership with Milliya Rumurra, several AOD programs in a number of metropolitan prisons and a Non-residential Service offering individuals and families counselling and support.
We draw on a diverse range of approaches including the Therapeutic Community Model, 12 Step
Recovery Models, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Systems Theory, Psychodynamic Theory, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Social Learning Theory.
Cyrenian House delivers proven expertise in leadership and coordination skills with particular
emphasis on partnership development. This allows us to work in a collaborative way with other
organisations to assist our consumers to address issues such as housing, employment and education and provide support to access health care providers for both physical and mental health care issues.
