Shanty Creek therapeutic community

 

Overview

The Shanty Creek facility, in Mareeba, Queensland, operates as a therapeutic community and provides residential rehabilitation to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men and women, aged 18 years and over, whose lives are affected by the use of alcohol and other drugs.

Clients can be referred from health, welfare and community organisations, or they may self-refer. The current maximum number of residents at any one time is 20. Suitable applicants will undergo a comprehensive assessment.
