The Missiondale Therapeutic Community (TC) is a 34 bed residential facility located on a 25-acre peaceful rural property in Evandale, Tasmania.

Admission to a Place of Safety can only be obtained by Police referral.
SMART recovery (self-management and recovery training) is a program that offers a chance to work together, to examine and change problem behaviours including drugs, alcohol, gambling, food, internet and others. SMART is a practical and solution focused program using evidence-based tools such as cognitive behavior therapy and motivational tools and techniques. The group is a safe place where you can express yourself freely and respectfully.
The program aims to enhance and maintain motivation, cope with urges, problem solve and maintain a lifestyle balance. The group focuses on the present (looking at the last 7 days and the next 7 days) the focus is on the behavior and not the problem itself. The group will share practical solutions and the participant will set their own achievable goal for the week ahead.

City Mission’s Serenity House offered me love and support while I detoxed from alcohol and drugs as well as providing me with basic counselling and options for me to further my recovery from addiction.
I chose to enter Missiondale’s Recovery Program where I have been able to start looking at all the core areas that underpinned my addiction. With help and guidance from God and the caring staff at Missiondale, my ambition to lead a happy and addiction-free life is becoming a reality.
Having time to reflect and having no distractions was most helpful [at Serenity House]. The staff are terrific.
