Mirikai Recovery Centre

What we offer

We provide residential, alcohol and drug support that is evidence-based. Tailoring treatment to people’s needs, the structured program involves group work and individual counselling. The live-in support is part of a more extensive treatment program which may extend many months depending on a person’s need and circumstances.

Length of stay

The residential program is offered over six-weeks to three months, depending on a person’s need, and is part of a continuous package of care. The package includes:
  • six weeks to three months live-in treatment at Mirikai 
  • specialist support before and after a live in stay 
  • transitional accommodation
  • community based counselling and support.

A flexible program is tailored to the individual and for success. We provide a wraparound service that that does not finish the day someone walks out our door. 


People aged between 18 and 35 can apply. 


A peaceful place of recovery in Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast, this 40-bed property features comfortable accommodation with a swimming pool and other leisure facilities. It provides a safe and drug-free environment. We offer free nicotine replacement therapy as long-term recovery goals are more likely to be achieved if smoking is also tackled. 


There is a focus on developing skills and strategies in support of mental health and wellbeing. Activities involving creativity, exercise and relaxation are incorporated into the treatment cycle. 

Our team

Support is provided by psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers and counsellors. We work with other community, health and government services to help people address a range of needs, such as in education, job skills, finance and legal issues.


What residents pay depends on their income or the type of benefit or payment they receive from Centrelink. Usually, the cost amounts to 85 per cent of the Centrelink benefit. All fees are openly agreed upon with clients prior to intake.


We provide ongoing support through our transitional accommodation program and free counselling and support in the community, which is offered by qualified health professionals.


Referrals are accepted, or people can self-refer.
