Private Health Insurance excess and gap costs vary depending on the level of cover. Our staff will give an estimate of the fees prior to admission. We have contracts with Health Funds and claim directly from them.

Our aim to provide a rounded program, offering not only withdrawal from drugs and alcohol, but a range of therapies. Before any person is admitted, they will undergo a pre-admission assessment by an Assessment Specialist. This is a face to face interview and takes about an hour. Our assessment staff will discuss client history, and thoroughly brief the client on all aspects of the program so they can make an informed decision as to whether the program is suitable for their needs.
Malvern Private patients are discharged detoxed from Alcohol and Drugs. We do not prescribe maintenance doses of medication, as we believe this is a benefit to long-term success. We also firmly believe that abstinence is possible.
Malvern Private offers bright, renovated surroundings. Clients are admitted into the intensive residential Drug and Alcohol Recovery Program. The residential stay encompasses elements of detoxification and Relapse Prevention. The program attempts to replicate a normal living environment within the confines of a hospital. Clients need to be a minimum age of 21 years of age to be accepted into the program.
We monitor and measure client recovery rates and outcomes and benchmark ourselves against the best programs in the world. We pride ourselves on being Australia’s Leading Drug & Alcohol Treatment Facility.
Detoxification is different for every client and the detoxification process can last for several days. We do not prescribe maintenance doses of medication. During the detoxification or withdrawal period, we will do everything possible to ensure clients are as comfort as possible.
The treating team will collaborate with the client during their stay to prepare a plan for discharge and beyond. This discharge plan includes:
If you require community services post discharge, these will be organised prior to your discharge. Where required and practicable, arrangements will be made for clients to go into supported accommodation post-discharge.Read our Frequently Asked Questions here
