Community Services

Community Detoxification

Our free Community Services offer a range of individualised non-resident treatment services for those affected by Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD).

There are many people using AOD who may be experiencing physical symptoms when trying to cut down or stop. Those with mild to moderate withdrawals can usually be safely detoxed without the need for in patient treatment. Working in conjunction with your GP, our experienced nurses offer practical help to people who are struggling to get off drugs and alcohol.

Detoxification is only one part of a person’s recovery. We will work with you before and after the detox program to maximise your chances of success.

Residential Services

Withdrawal Unit

The Milton Luger Detoxification unit has recently renovated its facilities as part of Odyssey House NSW’s focus on continuous improvement. The unit is based in a rural setting in Ingleburn, providing privacy and comfort to all of our residents.

This unit has a small admission fee ($250) and accommodates up to 12 people. It is staffed 24 hours a day by nursing staff with all clients initially assessed by a Doctor to determine the appropriate individual detoxification plan.

The program lasts 7 – 10 days and offers a way for a person to detox with high quality medical and emotional support. Elements include:

  • A choice of undergoing supervised medical or non-medical detoxification
  • Various group and individual activities such as art therapy, aromatherapy, meditation, dietetics and nutrition, and physical exercise.
  • Medical management of complex and chronic illnesses.


Upon completion, Odyssey House NSW offers referrals to other services including other Odyssey House programs.
