We provide treatment, support and education for those wishing to address harms related to substance use. Since 1977, clients have travelled from across Australia to use our comprehensive network of specialised withdrawal and rehabilitation programs. We provide residential and community service hubs across Greater Sydney, Blue Mountains and the NSW Southern Highlands.

Our professional teams help clients create a treatment plan to meet their goals and address any underlying trauma and mental health issues, while also developing new skills to improve all aspects of their lives. We keep clients at the centre of everything we do through professional case management, using rediCASE software, and step treatment up or down as clients develop skills in: emotional regulation; interpersonal effectiveness; self-awareness; self-care and education; communication, relationship and task management; problem-solving and planning; management of their home environment and social networks.

Our residential services, in South West Sydney, provide a seven-to-ten-day withdrawal program which applies an individually tailored approach to enable personal growth to replace dependency with a three to nine month+ residential treatment program, a specialised Parent’s and Children’s Program and short courses at Odyssey College to improve personal wellbeing and life skills. Our community services provide individual and group counselling as well as mental health and family support programs that are either delivered online on the phone or face–to–face at our hubs.

In addition, Odyssey partners with other service providers across the state to reconnect lives impacted by substance use. This includes the management of 70 NSW Community Drug Action Teams (CDATs) who work together on alcohol and other drugs (AOD) issues affecting their local communities.

We treat people who are homeless and sleeping rough, as well as those with homes and families and jobs. We can provide continuity of care through a range of programs for people wherever they are in their recovery journey and whatever the context of their lives. Many have mental health concerns (68 per cent), experience of trauma and family violence and/ or contact with the criminal justice system and require complex support.
