Palmerston offers two residential services, one in a semi-rural location south of Perth and the other in a small town in the South West. Both residential rehabs are known as a therapeutic community (TC) as this describes the way the program is designed and how it works. Both properties offer a calm setting for individuals to participate in the program which consists of a structured and supportive environment where residents work together as a community to benefit their own recovery as well as each other.

Below is a video highlighting the great work of the Farm TC.

Supporting Aboriginal residents 

The Farm TC is situated on Nyoongar Whudjuk land. Our Kwinana Elders have advised that the land in Wellard was once traditional hunting grounds and does not have any traditional sites such as men’s or women’s business.

Beela Valley TC is situated on Pinjarup country.

How do I access the program?

Assessment for the therapeutic residential program is available at our Perth or Bunbury offices. The assessment is tailored to meet individual needs to ensure maximum benefit from participating in the therapeutic community program. For this reason, the assessment process is slightly different for each individual and may vary in time to complete.

If you live in the metropolitan area and think you may be interested in residential rehab, please first attend an information session. No appointment is necessary, just come along. Feel free to bring a support person with you.

Information Sessions are held every week:

Wednesday at 10.00am  – Perth Office, 134 Palmerston Street, Perth (Northbridge)
Wednesday at 10.00am  – Bunbury Office, Lotteries House, 99-101 Victoria Street, Bunbury

Once you have attended the Information Session we can then book an Intake Assessment for you.

Rural and regional applications can be conducted by telephone or video conferencing.

Palmerston invites all interested persons living outside of the Perth metro area to watch the slideshow below and read the Frequently Asked Questions, then contact us to discuss and/or book an Intake Assessment.

For all matters regarding residential rehabilitation, please contact our Perth or Bunbury office.

Transitional program

Following their program completion at our residential services, we offer residents access to three transitional houses located in the southern metropolitan suburbs of Wellard, Leda and Palmyra. These beautifully furnished homes offer residents who are at risk of homelessness a safe, short term independent living option, with support from Farm TC staff. Clients are assisted with independent living skills, integration back into the community and support to identify suitable long-term housing.

Make Smoking History

Palmerston’s Beela Valley TC  is working in partnership with the Cancer Council of WA to make smoking history.
