"Turning Lives Around"

Donate to Watershed

There are no easy answers to the problems of drug and alcohol misuse in our society and the reality is that substance abuse is not confined to an isolated few. The cost to individuals, families, businesses and the community in general is immeasurable. However, research has consistently shown that drug rehabilitation can and does work!

Watershed’s work is essential to understanding the complexities of alcohol and drug use in our community and in developing effective approaches to prevent and treat addiction and other related harms.

Turning Lives Around

Watershed is committed to helping those people who are dependent on drugs and alcohol to permanently overcome their addictions and become a valued member of their community. This involves promoting a sense of self worth and responsibility, developing healthy lifestyle choices and positive living skills so that they can live a life that is both fulfilling and rewarding.

Our programs work and this was recognised in 1999 when Watershed became the first non-government residential detoxification and rehabilitation service in Australia to achieve national accreditation for the provision of a quality service.

Make a Difference!

Drug and alcohol dependence is not a consequence of choice, recovery from substance abuse is. The means to exercise that choice is often dependant on the support of others.

As drug and alcohol problems in our community increase, so do the needs of Watershed. Gifts from generous donors provide critical financial support for our programs which help families struggling with addiction to turn their lives around.

All donations over $2 to Watershed are tax deductible.
