At Gunnebah we strive to have the most affordable private rehab in Australia. We offer the highest quality program and services whilst keeping fees as low as possible. Despite keeping our costs low, we recognise that there are still financial barriers for many people.
With long wait lists for public rehab centres, we understand that this leaves many people in a very difficult situation. As a result, we are trying to do what we can to help. This includes: providing free community programs and advocating to government for the creation of more affordable rehab options for all.
Free Community Program
Gunnebah therapists run the Smart Recovery weekly training in Murwillumbah free of charge to anyone who wishes to attend. These meetings were originally run by Drug Arm under a government-funded program. When they lost funding, Gunnebah, recognised the need for it and took on the responsibility to keep it going.
Gunnebah is seeking reforms to the way the federal and state governments fund residential rehab so as to increase the number of affordable beds available to the public. We made a submission to the Parliamentary Inquiry into regional rehabs in Australia which you can read here.
