A highly destructive drug with no regard for social standing, cultural background or socioeconomic status, ICE is devastating individuals, families and communities. At Riverside Clinic we strive to repair the destruction caused on a personal level within the suffering individual and heal the damage inflicted on the family unit. We also make long-term recovery possible by advancing standards and practices in the field of addiction treatment.
The treatment approach for individuals rehabilitating from ICE is unique in comparison to other best practice treatment models. This is widely due to the harms associated with ICE, including psychological manifestations such as aggression and psychosis alongside a visible and often long term physical deterioration. At Riverside Clinic we offer a distinct intervention and rehabilitation service for individuals requiring withdrawal and rehabilitation from ICE misuse.
Our clinicians at Riverside Clinic Sanctuary have demonstrated experience in the management of Crystal Methamphetamine dependent individuals. This experience, and ongoing professional development in the field of neuroscience and cognitive restructuring, enables our clinicians to deliver individualised and cutting edge treatment methods.
The current scourge in ICE has been widely publicised Australia wide, alongside the apparent lull in viable and effective treatment options. Riverside Clinic is available as a quality, progressive, rehabilitation service. We have gone that extra step to offer unique, individually tailored solutions; we are here to help.
We offer this short term, residential, program as a circuit breaker for individuals in crisis.
Research indicates that most individuals require a minimum of 90 days in treatment to begin to arrest the addictive cycle.

At 39, steel-fixer and ship foreman Ashley checked himself into rehab to kick an addiction to alcohol and other drugs, a dependence he traces to a workplace accident in which he almost lost his hand and which led to many years of heavy pain medication.
