In Melbourne, public detox centres can offer addicts a maximum of five days of assistance. The physical traces of heroin leave the human body in just three, but mentally will most likely linger with an addict for the course of their lifetime.
The Immaculate Heart Community in Maidstone, is an abstinence-based, residential and therapeutic community; providing an environment conducive to building a new life. They accept men who have gone through detox programs, helping them deal with the mental and moral difficulties of substance dependence. Rebuilding the dignity and self-respect of community members is seen as one of the key goals.
