Hope offers a holistic, person-centred program for people affected by alcohol and drug misuse. This long term residential program is based on the Therapeutic Community model of care, which is characterised by a highly socialised and participatory environment.
Residents are engaged in vocational and life skills training through active social enterprises that enable them to be protagonists in their own journey to a more fulfilling life. The program also features group, peer, and individual counselling and coordinated free time activities. In this setting, it is the community itself, and the relationships that are created within it, that are the catalysts for change.
The program is carried out at heritage listed Rosella House in Geraldton, and at Hope Springs Community Farm, 40kms away. The farm works according to the principles of permaculture, defined as “the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive systems which have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems”. In addition to regular training from a local permaculture expert, residents participate in a variety of vocational activities on the farm and at the house.
