Our project is the first of its kind in Australia.


Our people

We are a group of professional and business men and women all with experience dealing with the problems around drug and alcohol addiction. We recognise the urgent need for an affordable residential facility and support for recovery from alcohol and drug dependency.


Our approach

The Sydney Retreat has a non-clinical, mutual-help approach to the problem of alcohol and drug dependency as used in the highly successful Minnesota model. We offer an immersive, supportive, educational setting using Alcoholics Anonymous principals.


Your support

We need financial contributions to realise our goal of opening in early 2020. Our progress is steady, our building in Stanmore has been purchased, we have charity status as a not-for-profit incorporated company. Your donation is a chance to bring about change.
