The Missiondale Therapeutic Community is a 24-bed residential facility located on a 35-acre peaceful rural property in Evandale, Tasmania.
The program is made up of four different stages, taking from 2-8 months to complete. Residents of all stages live together in shared accommodation (lounges, kitchens, bathrooms - but you will have your own bedroom) to support each other through the program.
The "community as method" approach at Missiondale supports the Community Values which are learning, honesty, work ethic and responsible concern.
You can contact Missiondale to fill out an application form over the phone to be placed on the Waiting List. Once you are on the Waiting List, you are required to keep in touch with us once a week on (03) 6391 8013.
This enables us to keep up to date with your current contact details and if you ring each week, you will move up on the Waiting List.
If we do not hear from you for a period of three weeks, you will be removed from the Waiting List. If you ring after that three week period, you will go back onto the Waiting List from that date and start the process again.
Our welcoming, trustworthy and professional team made up of Social Workers, Case Managers, Supervisors and Suppport Workers will support you to set goals and provide you with the tools to work towards achieving them.
