Saranna women and children's program

 

Overview

The Saranna women and children's program is a residential alcohol and other drug program, in Western Australia, which allows mothers with young dependent children in their care to access a residential service within a therapeutic community setting. The program caters for both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal women and children impacted by alcohol and other drug use.

Accommodation facilities include 14 self-contained two and three bedroom houses. Women and their children form an integral part of the therapeutic community living in self contained cottages while engaging in a daily program of recovery. One of the aims of the program is to support family re-unification.

The Saranna program can accommodate mothers with babies, pre-primary or primary school aged children.
