An antidote to, "I've got it under control."

If you’re looking to reclaim your life from addiction, and take back control – whether that is starting fresh, repairing damage or even moving on – this is a safe, supportive environment for you to learn how to do exactly that.

Through our unique Manor Born program, aftercare, and community we can guide you back from addiction.

Does this sound familiar?

  • You often drink more than you planned or intended.

  • You prioritize drinking over meeting your obligations at school, work or home.

  • You continue using regardless of the negative impacts on your relationships, financial situation, or health.

  • You're letting your addiction put you in situations that could be physically hazardous, like drinking and driving.

  • You experience withdrawal symptoms when you don't drink. (anxiety, depression, insomnia, nausea, sweating, hand tremors/"the shakes," confusion, seizures or hallucinations)

  • You need to drink more in order to achieve the same effect.

  • You've lost interest in activities you used to enjoy. 

  • You're becoming socially isolated and dishonest or secretive to try to hide your addiction.

  • You crave alcohol first thing in the morning.

  • You spend an inordinate amount of time thinking about drinking, getting drunk, and recovering from hangovers.

If you identify with some or all of the above, we can help.

The Addiction Counselling Difference.


  • Among the many benefits of the Addiction Counselling Services program is our flexibility as one of the premier addiction recovery programs in Australia.

    We offer Inpatient, Day patient for those with transport, Outpatient, Co-dependency, and Aftercare programs.

    For clients with medical benefit coverage, we can refer patients to specific hospitals interstate who specialize in addictive disorders before returning to The Manor Born for your stabilization program, however, clients often elect to recuperate in our idyllic setting located in the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia’s hills.


  • Our programs are individually customised to your needs.

    In addition to our focused live-in approach to recovery, our aftercare program involves continuous support for as long as you need it on completion of the inpatient program.

    We offer individual and group therapy for addictive disorders concerning alcohol, smoking, food, gambling, sex and other process addictions, as well as detox from chemical dependency.


  • This 7-bed facility, nestled amongst 40 acres of beautiful rolling hills, provides an ideal environment for men, women, families and significant others to reflect and work on their personal recovery journey.

    Our facility offers counsellor-led, group and solitary opportunities for clients to work along-side their counsellors to address addiction, health concerns, relationship issues, building self-worth, body image, and many more issues specifically related to how individuals experience and work through these issues.

    In our secluded environment, residents have the opportunity to experience, recognize and overcome the negative power of addiction at its source.

    The intimate size of our program allows us to create and support specialty treatments and interventions as the needs of our clients surface.

    We are delighted to offer treatment for up to twelve weeks of live-in nurturing at The Manor Born as well as Day Patient treatment (for those with transport).
