We offer a life-changing experience by providing an immersive & supportive 28-day residential program with the primary goal of helping our guests get better and start to change their life in a safe and supportive community environment.

Not-For-Profit Residential Recovery Program

In July 2014, a group of dedicated professionals and recovered individuals pooled their financial resources and experience and began planning The Sydney Retreat. This shared commitment and generosity have created an affordable, accessible and effective residential recovery service to help alcohol and drug-dependent individuals recover.

Why Residential Alcohol and Drug Treatment?

Residential treatment programs are widely regarded as the most effective way to combat drug and alcohol addiction. These programs are designed to help individuals fast-track their recovery and reduce the likelihood of relapse. The key advantage of a residential treatment program is the environment that it provides. 

Why The Sydney Retreat For Alcohol & Drug Addiction?

What makes us different from other drug & alcohol rehabs is our program and our staff. All Sydney Retreat staff have experienced dependency issues and found a path to long-term recovery. This allows guests to recover in a safe and caring environment surrounded by experienced and trained individuals who understand.

The 28-day residential program offers a comfortable, supportive and educational setting that is grounded in the principles of 12-step recovery.

We understand how difficult it is to see a loved one, friend or family member suffer from a drinking or drug problem.

The Sydney Retreat Approach

Our Approach


Every week at The Sydney Retreat, guests attend a discussion with addiction medicine specialist, Dr Stephen Jurd. In his Addiction and the Brain lecture series, Dr Jurd hears one question over and over again – Why can’t I moderate my drinking and drug use like everyone else? The answer pertains to a small and ancient part of our brains known as the reward pathway. And this part of the brain reacts differently among addicts and alcoholics.
