Windana is a major provider of alcohol and other drug treatment services in Victoria. Our aim is to offer holistic, innovative services to our client group, and we encourage staff and clients to work in partnership.  The value of community is intrinsic to our culture and promotes a sense of purpose and hope for the future.

The Therapeutic Community (TC) residents rehabilitate by exploring their own life experiences and learning from the experience and insights of others.  In education, therapy, and workgroups which form the basis of the daily routine everyone has an opportunity to explore new ways of experiencing life.  The TC is all about change and growth in a supportive and non-judgmental environment.

Located 75kms east of Melbourne, on a 40-acre property, residents live in self-contained houses in a campus-style setting.

This exciting opportunity will include providing case management, support and various therapeutic interventions to clients accessing residential rehabilitation services.  Directly accountable to the Therapeutic Community Team Leader, the Community Facilitator is responsible for providing opportunities for residents to identify and address risk-taking behavioural patterns and develop lifestyles of self-determined purpose.
