Thanks to the generosity of the community, young people now have a recreation space to keep them occupied while detoxing from drugs. 

half court 400 x 400

David Martin Place, a Triple Care Farm withdrawal unit, has now been running for about one year since its launch in mid 2017.

Thanks to your support, and the contribution of John T Reid Charitable Trusts, a half court is now available for young people to enjoy while they detox from alcohol and drugs like ice, marijuana, ecstasy and subscription medication. 

David Martin Place follows a holistic treatment model. More than a facility that helps young people withdraw from substances, it also cares for the resident's mental health and provides support for young people for up to six months when they return to the community. 

Since the opening of this much-needed facility, staff have recognised the importance of providing young people with activites to keep them stimulated, provide a gateway for any frustrations they might be feeling and instill confidence. 

This half court will be much appreciated by the young residents and will provide the encouragement they need to get outside, get healthy and learn to care about their wellbeing again.

Thanks again for helping give youth in crisis the best chance at building a brighter future.
