Serenity House

Serenity House is a Sobering Up and Place of Safety facility located in Burnie, North West Tasmania. It is also a place for ‘time-out’, offering communal living under the support and supervision of trained staff. Counselling is available, along with referral to other agencies and follow-up when requested. Time-out is available for people from any part of the state where substance misuse is the primary presenting need for support.

Available Services

Time out

Time-out is a non-structured period of accommodation for men and women, offering a break from a cycle of substance misuse for a short term in a “closed community” setting. It offers a chance to refresh and find some stability and support and learn about options moving forward.

Serenity House can also be used as a transition pathway out of a medical or other monitored detox program to a longer term rehabilitation service or back to an individual’s home.

Sobering up

Serenity House cares for persons found intoxicated by alcohol, drugs (illicit or prescribed) or a combination of both until they are sober. This service is non-medical in nature. Staff regularly check on and support the individual during this period and provide counsel, further support and the possibility of referral once the sobering up is complete. If any physical or mental health complications occur while the client is sobering up, immediate medical or other appropriate support is contacted.

Place of Safety

This service provides support for anyone found by Police affected by the consumption of alcohol, drugs (illicit or prescribed) or a combination of both and likely to cause harm to themselves, harm to another person or are incapable of protecting themselves from physical harm. It is an alternative to being taken into custody.

Referral is directly from Police.
