Bushmob

BushMob was developed to help young people in the Northern Territory aged 12-25 who are experiencing issues with alcohol, drugs and sniffing.

BushMob operates a 20 bed residential facility as well as providing outreach and support to young people and families.

BushMob runs a residential program in Alice Springs for young people wanting to get their lives back on track without alcohol, drugs or sniffing. The program allows each participant the option of a support person who can stay with them for a few days when they begin the program. The program requires the participants to undertake alcohol and other drug assessments, receive medical checkups and receive counselling. The BushMob residential program is a very unique program, tailored to meet the needs of young people living in Central Australia.
