Lives Lived Well provides support for people in Queensland and New South Wales who are being impacted by alcohol or drugs or problems with mental health. We aim to take a holistic, compassionate and harm minimisation approach to help people live their lives well. Our community supports are free to access, and we also provide low-cost live-in services.
Our activity at Nurture Festival will be fatal vision goggles to simulate progressively increasing blood alcohol levels whilst tossing small bean bags into a bucket demonstrating reduced coordination and control when consuming alcohol. Discussion regarding making more informed and responsible choices when intaking all substances, especially alcohol.
Our Queensland services are delivered across more than 20 locations with outreach into many more communities. We specialise in community-based counselling and group programs for those impacted by drug and alcohol use and for their families. We also provide live-in rehabilitation on the Gold Coast, Logan, Caboolture and Mareeba. Our programs are designed to meet the diverse needs of the community including working with young people, children and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities.
We are the lead agency for headspace Southport and headspace Upper Coomera, mental health services for young people and run the Lives Lived Well Specialist Centre on the Gold Coast. We also run Lighthouse at Southport, a service for young people with severe and/or complex mental health. Another important aspect of our work is in supporting people to successfully re-enter the community upon release from custodial centres.
