FORWAARD Foundation of Rehabilitation with Aboriginal Alcohol Related Difficulties

FORWAARD Aboriginal Corporation is a quality certified, not for profit, Aboriginal controlled organisation which was established in 1967.  Through our treatment programs, FORWAARD enables people to integrate back into society reconnecting with their families and community. We provide a secure place for individuals to stay while they are recovering, in an environment that is culturally appropriate and supportive of efforts at rehabilitation. While we predominantly support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, we will, and always have assisted any person who is genuinely seeking and needing our services.

We provide client centred, holistic programs, focusing on all aspects of an individuals social and emotional wellbeing. As part of our program, we explore the positive impact that harm minimisation has on a person, their family and community. We will provide a variety of life skills, financial and work placement training, all the while supporting clients and providing them with the tools needed to overcome their alcohol or drug misuse.
