26 March 2020 - Due to the Covid-19 Outbreak we regret we are not accepting any referrals or applications at this time. Please check back regularly for updates. We apologise for any inconvenience.
Our service is closed to any new applications for our residential program. This is due to the current situation and the associated shortages of essential supplies and equipment. We are recommending all referrers with a client experiencing an acute drug and alcohol dependency to contact their regions' detox facility and request a stand alone detox, i.e. a detox without subsequent admission to residential rehab. This may save lives. Most regions will have drug and alcohol counsellors attached to the hospital or detox for follow up support. Many have set up for tele health access ongoing if a psychologist is needed.
Namatjira Haven is an independent Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisation which plays a leading role in empowering Aboriginal people to strengthen their health and wellbeing.
Namatjira Haven Drug & Alcohol Healing Centre is situated in the rolling hills of the Far North Coast of NSW at Alstonville mid-way between Lismore and Ballina.
Set in peaceful rural surrounds, we are close to major Centres, yet far enough away from the hustle and bustle to allow residents a quiet opportunity to consider and make the changes needed to improve their lives.
