27 May 2020 - Namatjira Haven is now accepting referrals for men local to our area
Out of area referrals are also being accepted but there may be delays in assessing these to determine risks associated with the pandemic. All applicants, local and non-local, will be required to go through detox at Riverlands detox facility in Lismore, NSW prior to admission. Namatjira Haven staff will then transport them from Riverlands to Namatjira Haven. They may also be required to isolate on site for a further period.
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.
