Aranda House

Aranda House is a 20 bed residential rehabilitation facility that offers a 12 week program and we also offer an eight week program for Volatile Substance Misusers. The Transitional After Care Unit is also attached to the Aranda House facility; this is semi independent living supported by DASA staff and clients can stay for up to a year in this Program.


Each client coming through our doors has a thorough assessment to look at their achievable goals and assigned to a Case Worker. The program is a therapeutic community model where clients are actively involved in their own personal recovery in a supportive and caring environment.


Transitional After Care Unit

The Transitional After Care Unit is a semi- independent residential facility in which all residents have their own bedroom / bathroom and shared common areas. The clients also link in with the Aranda House Rehabilitation clients at meal times and with some activities.


The focus of the Transitional After Care Unit is to provide a safe, supportive, clean and sober environment for clients to further progress in their journey of drug and alcohol rehabilitation, whilst working with the clients to engage them in employment and education; and to reconnect with their families prior to moving back into the community.

Independent Living Program

Our Independent Living Program (formerly the Bath Street Vet Clinic) is now ready for client intake, allowing clients to continue the latter stage of their journey while living with their families in self-contained apartments - with support from a DASA Case Worker.


Employment, Education, Family and Life Skills are all integral parts of this area of our Program. Please contact Sharon Lane (Operations Manager, Aranda House Therapeutic Community) on 08 8952 0410 to discuss referrals to this service.
