Young people coming to Triple Care Farm Rehabilitation have reported multiple failed attempts to detox – to break the cycle of addiction. Each failed attempt led them to greater drug use. Their attempts had failed because, until now, there has been limited support for young people to detox. Either they were left to fend for themselves or they had to attend an adult facility, which felt unsafe and unsuitable.

Meeting a great demand in the community, the Triple Care Farm Withdrawal Program focuses on providing young people with the best opportunity to break free from the cycle of addiction in a supportive, effective environment.
