5 Day Outpatient Program

You may question if you have a problem, or think that you can stop anytime, but if alcohol or drug use is impacting on you relationships, work, interests and general wellbeing, that's not okay.

Excess drinking/ partying, binge alcohol and drug use, or feeling the need for something to get you through can be the beginnings to a full blown dependency.

Time to reach out, get some help and do something about it.

Malvern Private’s education program for problematic Drug and Alcohol use provides access to our best practice dependency treatment facilities and practices, without the need for residential stay or the need for private health cover.

The Program is educational and focussed on you, requiring commitment and determination from you. In return, our aim to provide you a dedicated environment of qualified Doctors and Practitioners to educate and guide you through the steps of the program.
