I like meth and smoke it every 3 days if possible. This would be fine if not for a forthcoming life changing move interstate in the future


I have not hit rock bottom just yet but I'm interested in Australian based rehabs for getting clean.

I've done the whole detox in acute mental health hospital ward thing before ( albeit for Amphetamines and cannabis 19 years ago)

So I know kinda what to expect.

If you have private health insurance I can recommend South Pacific at Curl Curl in Sydney. It does follow a 12-step model but it also gives equal weight to psychiatry and psychology and people who have a dual diagnosis and need to medicated are well looked after. They focus a lot on trauma. It’s 100 % residential.

Apart from that there is an outpatient clinic at St Vincents Hospital that specialises in stims. They have a really great app to help you quit or cutdown your use too.

Hey @Boku_ I'm based in Sydney as well (like Perforated), so all my specific recommendations from my personal experience are going to be Sydney/NSW based as well.

Are you currently in Melbourne? Where are you moving to, and when? Do you want to do rehab before, or after the interstate move? What kind of rehab would you be looking at, e.g. 3 months, 6 months, 12 months or more?

All of the rehabs I know of require you to be at least 3 weeks completely clean and sober BEFORE entering the rehab, so you'd need to detox before going in.

I'd like to detox in a Melbourne Hospital for 2-3 weeks and then 30 days rehab either Vic or NSW but that's just a quess.

Maybe a hospital detox would be enough. I really don't know

@andyturbo do you know anything about detoxing in Melbourne, mate?
Thanks n3ophy7e for tagging me in this.

@Boku_ I have only been to rehab once and it was a privately paid one called Dayhab. I did the 30 day stay which involved Dailey classroom activities in Wheelers Hill then we stayed at a property about 25mins minibus ride out past the dandynongs.

I think the Odyssey House Victoria program is the best option for someone that doesn't have the funds for private rehab.
https://odyssey.org.au (@n3ophy7e I know we generally don't allow links to offsite pages but I feel the harm reduction value justifies having that link there for Boku. All good if you disagree feel free to edit :) )

If you want to chat more in private Boku just txt or call me man. Same number as you have.

Andy
