About The Glen

The Glen Centre is an Aboriginal Community Controlled Drug and Alcohol Residential Rehabilitation Centre for men and women across two sites at Chittaway Point & Wyong Creek on the Central Coast of NSW. The Glen has worked with over 3,500 clients over the past 27 years. The National accreditation body QIP recently recognised The Glen as one of the most successful and well-run Drug and Alcohol rehabilitation programs in Australia, having set a national record for quality standards.

The Glen’s program is designed to treat a client in a holistic manner by addressing all of their issues. This means that we treat the person as a whole (spiritually, mentally and physically). We don’t just treat their addiction, we also look at things in their life that may be causing the addictive behaviours. Our program is about empowering people to take control of their lives, to live a good, fun life and to become active members of their families and the community as a whole.

The Glen has a very passionate team of staff who are always seeking to improve ourselves to help improve our clients. One of the most difficult aspects of any role at The Glen is leading people (clients, volunteers and staff).
