The Raymond Hader Clinic

Melbourne 3004

“THANKS TO THE RAYMOND HADER CLINIC I AM NOW ALMOST 18 MONTHS CLEAN AND MY LIFE IS AMAZING... I COULD NOT HAVE TURNED MY LIFE AROUND WITHOUT HELP, BEFORE ENTERING THE RETREAT I WAS EXTREMLY DEPRESSED AND DEVOID OF HOPE. THE FACT THAT THE STAFF HAD PAST LIFE EXPERIENCE WITH DRUGS AND ALCOHOL MEANT I WAS MORE RECEPTIVE AND FEEL THEY WHERE BETTER ABLE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT WAS GOING ON FOR ME. THROUGH THE INTRODUCTION TO 12 STEP RECOVERY I GOT WHILST IN REHAB I NOW HAVE A STRONG NETWORK OF SUPPORT AND A PROGRAM OF CONTINUING RECOVERY. I WOULD NOT HAVE GONE TO OR STAYED IN NA OR AA OF MY OWN ACCORD. I AM EXTREMELY GRATEFUL TO HAVE BEEN GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY OF STAYING AT THE RETREAT FOR 6 MONTHS AND THEN FOLLOWING ON WITH OUTPATIENT TREATMENT. I WAS IN ACTIVE ADDICTION FOR OVER 20 YEARS AND BELIEVE THERE IS NO QUICK FIX AND THAT IT IS NOT EASY ... NOW I AM LIVING THE DREAM, SO WORTH THE EFFORT.”

“Admitted into the Raymond Hader Clinic program in 2007 after intervention from the courts. Today I am now 3.5 years alcohol and drug free after 20 years of addiction. I attribute my success to the Raymond Hader Clinic and following the direction of their staff that have personal experience with addiction. The philosophy is based on twelve step coupled with residing in a therapeutic community and a lot of group and individual work. I followed the complete 90 day program as well as transitional housing program and my life is unrecognisable compared to the shadow of the person that entered the program three and half years ago. Can not fault the Raymond Hader Clinic.”

Melbourne 3004

“$2000, a week to stay in a dalipidated building. Long days with no rest or free time. Daily work duties, basically repairing the site. Only 2 showers. No music, books, or tv. G rated dvd may be allowed on a sat night. Medication despensed by ex patients working there as support workers. (Legal ?) Spend alot of time on old vehicles attending evening AA and NA meetings. All phones calls are monitered and only allowed on a sunday. The owner promised alot such as Cognitive Behabiour Therapy, which never happened, cannot go for a run, as there is not time, punishment system in places, called 'an awareness' in the form of essay writing. 3 in one week and dropped at the Vline station. Yoga with a meal is the highlight of the week. The 'theraputic community' asseses you and decides if you are ready to leave, even if you planned three months. All employees are recovering addicts, even your councelor you will see 1 hour a week, which is okay, but the have no concept of any other issues, such as anxiety, depression, bi pola etc.

My sugestion, go into a hospital detox and attend a twelve step meeting every day, and keep your $2000 a week (suggested stay is 3months, thats $24000 plus the rest) visits to melbourne to visit a doctor or ”

“$1885 per week to stay in a tin shed with no air conditioning, forced to do yoga in 42 degree heat twice a week, travel around Melbourne in a mini bus to attend daily NA meetings. More like a harsh bootcamp than a retreat. Save your money and attend NA meetings on your own, thats what works.”
