The Windana Therapeutic Community is a 77 bed residential facility located on a 40 acre property in Maryknoll, Victoria.
The program is delivered through four different phases over a period of 6-12 months. Residents of all phases live together in shared accommodation across five separate houses to support each other through the program.
The community as method approach utilised at Windana provides therapeutic and educational impact to residents who participate in self-help and mutual-help activities.
Our program at Maryknoll now includes Australia’s first Welcome House. Entering a long-term residential rehabilitation program can be daunting, and the first 30 days are particularly challenging. Our Welcome House provides a ‘soft landing’ for new residents commencing treatment at Maryknoll TC.
In this video David Scott, Manager of Maryknoll TC talks about what the Welcome House is, and how it benefits clients.
We’d like to thank our generous donors – the Friends of Windana and Gandel Philanthropy – for their support of this project.
