Lives lived well
Lives Lived Well is a not-for-profit organisation working to support people impacted by drugs, alcohol and mental health concerns. Our purpose is to support people to live their life well. We do this by providing evidence-informed services to deliver outcomes that make a difference in people’s lives. We work with GPs, allied health professionals and other services to offer an integrated approach that meets the needs of the people we support. We believe that with the right support, people can change their lives. And we see evidence of this every day as we support people to make changes to live their life well.
The Salvation Army is one of Australia’s largest providers of alcohol and other drug treatment services, with centres located in every state and territory. We hope that our treatment services can help people build their lives in meaningful and purposeful ways. The focus of our services is harm reduction – we aim to prevent and reduce harm for both individuals and the wider community. While addressing problematic substance use is key, we also strive for people to have better relationships with their families, friends, and communities. Our core belief is that all people are worthy and deserving of love, respect, and dignity. Across Australia, The Salvation Army offer a range of programs, including withdrawal management, residential rehabilitation, non-residential rehabilitation, community programs, and harm-reduction interventions.
