If you or someone you know would like to enter the Triple Care Farm Rehabilitation program, please read this page carefully. We refer to young people attending the Farm as ‘students’.
Unfortunately, there are limited places for young people at Triple Care Farm. This means the program will only accept applications from young people who meet the below criteria. The young person must:
1) Be aged between 16 and 24 | students can’t enter before their 16th birthday and must complete the program before their 25th birthday
2) Have problematic drug and alcohol use | problematic drug and alcohol use is daily or near daily use and use of multiple types of drugs
3) Be able to participate in all aspects of the program | students must be physically, developmentally and mentally capable of participating in all activities
4) Demonstrate commitment to undertake the program, as assessed at interview | The program is voluntary – students cannot be forced to attend or participate
5) Must be an Australian resident | must be an Australian resident, currently residing in Australia
Triple Care Farm Rehabilitation specialises in treating young people who also are suffering with mental health issues, however, this is not a requirement of entry. Outstanding court matters or legal problems will not affect the application.
- Triple Care Farm is not a ‘boot camp’ for young people with behavioural issues
- Young people must be detoxed before they start the Rehabilitation Program
The Application Process
1) Confirm permission to proceed | If you are applying on behalf of a young person, you must discuss the application with them beforehand and have permission to proceed with the application
2) Review eligibility criteria | Do you meet the eligibility criteria?
4) Phone the Intake Coordinator | Within two weeks of submitting the application, the young person must phone the Intake Coordinator at Triple Care Farm on (02) 4885 1265 between business hours on Monday to Friday to discuss the application
If the young person is deemed eligible for the program, the Intake Coordinator will set up a face-to-face interview with staff members from the program. An assessment panel will then decide if the young person will be offered a place.
Risk Assessment Form
If you or the person you’re referring has a community-based support worker of any kind (e.g. Juvenile Justice officer, Probation & Parole officer, mental health worker, GP/doctor support, counsellor, mentor, social worker or case manager), the Risk Assessment Form needs to be completed by the most relevant support worker and sent to the TCF Intake Coordinator in addition to the online application form.
Once completed, send it to the Triple Care Farm Intake Coordinator via email or post.

Please send through additional documentation to the Intake Coordinator that might provide further information, such as court orders or psychological reports. Make sure all documents are clearly labelled with the applicant's name.
