Ngaimpe Aboriginal Corporation set up The Glen in 1994. Since that time, it has been an example of the Koori spirit, and indeed the human spirit. The Glen is the only male-specific Central Coast Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Centre and we are proud to provide opportunities for drug and alcohol rehabilitation for Indigenous and non-Indigenous men from all over NSW.As we all know being a teenager in the 21st century has different issues than in previous eras.
Our clients’ stories are evidence that dreams can come true and lives can be changed. Seeing the pain and suffering in the community at the hands of drug and alcohol addiction was the motivation for founding The Glen. To this day, we are committed to keeping men (Indigenous and non-indigenous) out of the criminal justice system and in treatment for the drug and alcohol addiction that led to their offending behaviours.
The Glen welcomes any man over the age of 18 who could benefit from our program. We are proud to be an organisation that is helping to break down the barriers between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians and working towards reconciliation.
We acknowledge that while Indigenous Australians are struggling with drug and alcohol abuse issues, it is a problem in all parts of modern Australian society. Addiction does not discriminate on the basis of colour or anything else.
