The Recovery Point

The Recovery Point assists those leaving prison or with alcohol & drug problems in Newcastle.

The Recovery Point is a program that provides practical assistance and support to people who are leaving prison and/or alcohol & drug rehabilitation centres to re-engage with the community.

We approach this transition one step at a time, from assistance with finding accommodation, clothing, ID, Centrelink and opening a bank account.

The program gives you the opportunity of being engaged in work, training/education and/or social & recreational activities, so that you are not socially isolated.

Drop In between 9am – 3pm and chat to one our caseworkers about the services and programs on offer.
