We believe that body, mind and spirit must be treated as one if YOU are to enter sustainable recovery. While the basis of our program is the Twelve Steps model, we supplement this by blending the best traditional and complementary therapies. This blend is designed to be both effective and practical, so that you can take away the techniques that you have been taught and implement them in your everyday lives once you leave Ledgehill.

Success Rate


One of the things we are most frequently asked is “What is your success rate?”


Success and its measurement is subjective. We at Ledgehill are aware that without continual personal growth and progress, success or improvement may not be achieved.

Success is acknowledging and accepting help. Life becomes easier when you learn to accept.

How long are your programs?

We start with an initial core residential program lasting between 30 and 90 days. This workshop can help you to sustain your recovery. Ledgehill is committed to supporting you through our aftercare program by connecting with your local AA and NA meetings and recovery coaches.

What types of addiction problems does Ledgehill treat?

At Ledgehill we provide every client with the opportunity to gain skills to recover from addictive illness. Our program is designed to address chemical addictions, such as alcohol and drugs, and behaviour addictions, such as gambling. Multiple addictive behaviours are commonly experienced by individuals already suffering with an initial addiction. Mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression go hand in hand with addiction. In recognizing the entwined relationship between mental health and addiction, Ledgehill completes a detailed clinical assessment as part of the admission process so a holistic evidence based program of support is developed for each individual.

What is a typical day like in your program?

Just as in normal life, Ledgehill Treatment and Recovery Centre runs on a weekday and weekend schedule. The weekdays are more structured, similar to a work day. The weekends will present opportunity for out trips, laundry, AA or NA meetings, and self-directed activities. During the weekday our program commences at 7:30am with a morning routine which includes a group check in, yoga and meditation. You will enjoy a nutritious start to your day with breakfast. Every day from Monday to Friday you will participate in psychoeducational and process groups from 9am to 10:30am and 1pm to 2:30pm. Mid-morning and mid-afternoon will provide the opportunity for a recreation break. During this time you will participate in gentle physical movement outdoors to increase health and build body awareness. The recreation break may also incorporate phototherapy, art, yoga, tai chi, meditation or hiking. Evenings are primarily client self-directed time, with the exception of three community-based AA or NA meetings.
