Rick Hammersley Centre Therapeutic Community

Since 1981, Cyrenian House has offered residential programs at the Rick Hammersley Centre Therapeutic Community (RHCTC), located 30 minutes north of Perth on 32 acres of natural bushland.

RHCTC offers 2 residential programs:

Gnangara Program – A four staged program catering to men and women aged 18 years or over. A strengths based approach, therapeutic interventions and positive peer support teach and encourage self-responsibility and guide you towards optimal health and wellbeing. You can tailor your treatment experience to meet your individual needs and goals.

Saranna Women and Children’s Program – This program enables women to live with and care for their young dependent children onsite whilst engaging in AOD treatment. Each family is accommodated in their own individual house on the property. You can fully participate in the treatment program and your children attend a local primary school, or our purpose built childcare centre located in the grounds of the property.

My husband and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our heart.
It had been a terrible few years, we had faced lots of upset in our life by seeing our daughter destroying herself.
All the years we tried hard to bring her up right, and show her respect and loyalty, we had a good
family, then this evil substance meth came along and destroyed us all.

We had tried everything; it tore us apart.
Then Julie took the first step, we made sure she got to meetings. Every time we came in, they came and spoke with her, and took the time to speak to me as well.
Thank you.

The day Julie was told she had been accepted to Rick Hammersley Centre TC, it was the happiest day in a long time.
Hope was in sight.
The staff at RHCTC are awesome, they had a few hard times with Julie.
She also rang to come home as well, but as the weeks turned into months things improved tremendously.

We started seeing our beautiful daughter come back to us.
When I first read about meth addicts, they said it’s rare to come through, but she did.

So, thank you.
We are grateful that Cyrenian House exists.

Julie is 6 months clean.
I know we have some hurdles to overcome but we can now see light at the end of the tunnel.

We were recently in a restaurant having dinner. There was this lovely lady across from us.
She made us laugh. She had an amazing smile.
Her conversation was so interesting.
Her skin looked healthy.
She was so excited about her future.
It was our daughter Julie.
Thank you.
