Windana is a major provider of alcohol and other drug treatment services in Victoria. Our aim is to offer holistic, innovative services to our client group, and we encourage staff and clients to work in partnership. The value of community is intrinsic to our culture and promotes a sense of purpose and hope for the future.

The Therapeutic Community (TC) residents rehabilitate by exploring their own life experiences and learning from the experience and insights of others. In education, therapy, and workgroups which form the basis of the daily routine everyone has an opportunity to explore new ways of experiencing life. The TC is all about change and growth in a supportive and non-judgmental environment.

Located 75kms east of Melbourne, on a 40-acre property, residents live in self-contained houses in a campus-style setting.

The program is delivered through four different phases over a period of 6-12 months. Residents of all phases live together in shared accommodation across five separate houses to support each other through the program.

The Aftercare Program provides ongoing support and social connection opportunities for people establishing themselves in recovery post treatment.

Directly accountable to the Team Leader Community Programs, the Aftercare Coordinator is responsible for the management of the Pakenham Transition House and Integration House program as well as developing a recovery community for current and past Windana clients.

To be successful in this role, you will have:

  • A minimum of two years’ work experience in the drug and alcohol field and demonstrated knowledge of problematic alcohol and other drug use
  • Demonstrated experience in working with adults and awareness of family sensitive practices
  • Demonstrated knowledge of co-morbidity in relation to mental illness and problematic alcohol and other drug use
  • Demonstrated skills and experience relevant to coordinating residential rehabilitation programs
  • Diploma qualification in AOD, health, social or the behaviour science field or extensive relevant experience
