The Manor Born Program.

A flexible, supportive environment, tailored to help clients recover from alcoholism within a comfortable, relaxed program.

Located between Clarendon and Kangarilla, on a forty acre property, The Manor Born is a manor house, surrounded by tranquil bushland – an ideal retreat for recuperation/recovery.

In the safe, discreet environment of The Manor Born, with encouragement and guidance, you will have a supported opportunity to experience, recognize and overcome the negative power of alcoholism at its source.


In this setting, you will have the chance to track, on a daily basis, the insidious nature of Addiction through programs that are tailored and designed to maximize your chance of recovery.

Who is this program for?

When it comes to drug and alcohol addiction, it’s difficult to be objective and admit you have a problem. If substance abuse is causing negative effects in your life, it’s time to take a closer look and come to terms with the fact that you might have an addiction


Once you can accept that, you’re already on the path to recovery.


The truth of the matter is:

If you’re questioning whether or not you need help getting sober, you likely do.


If your life and relationships are being negatively affected by your substance use, you probably have an addiction.


If you’re losing control and want to quit… but, can’t, you probably have an addiction.

If you’ve tried to quit without success, you probably have an addiction.


If you’re regularly craving and spending a lot of time searching for the substance, you probably have an addiction.


If your substance use has reached dangerous levels, you’re developing a tolerance, and suffer from withdrawals, you probably have an addiction.

The good news? Going through the treatment process will give you new coping mechanisms necessary to attain and maintain ongoing recovery. You will gain the support required to help you in the recovery enhancement process into the future. Accessing the correct treatment is your best chance at a successful recovery.

How does the program work?

In order to be successful in stopping substance use or co-dependent behaviour, you must be able to maintain recovery by learning new skills.


We assist you through your post-acute withdrawal process with ongoing access to counsellor support, teaching you to implement strategies to protect yourself from the potential negative effects of neglecting your newly installed coping mechanisms, self-care boundary setting, good nutrition, exercise, relaxation, and a balanced lifestyle.


Relapse is not a foregone conclusion when you have the capacity to be honest with yourself, and you know how to implement the tools provided by the Manor Born Program.


Treatment of addictive disorders requires a range of complex methods carried out consistently over time.


The Manor Born Program engages all of these abstinence-based processes to give you the best chance for stable self-management and enhanced recovery.

How long is the program?

The Addiction Counselling Services Program Requires A Commitment Of Six, Eight, Or Twelve Weeks.

    Six-Week Program
    Eight-Week Program
    Twelve-Week Program

    The 12-week program offers the best chance of stabilizing your brain chemistry to allow you to move forward through your addictive process.


    This program has the highest long-term success rate of the three.


    In this program, you will go through individual therapy and self-help groups and set up an aftercare plan. You’ll be able to gain insight into the triggers that may cause either negative self-care or relapse, learn to resist future temptations and clearly identify any potential triggers.


    This program is also recommended for those who have long-term addictions.

What does a typical day look like?

This is a full time, intensive process.


We’ll begin each day at 10am with a meditation session. This session includes educational video presentations and lectures and runs for approximately two and a half hours. Our maximum group size is eight people plus your counsellors.


Lunch is one hour before returning for afternoon process group and written work.


In the early afternoon, you’ll have time for individual work and will have plenty of opportunity for one-on-one work with your counsellors available for conversations, questions, and clarifications until 5:30pm.


Between 5:30pm and 8:30pm, you can attend a self-help group either on Zoom or in person. We will help you find a suitable group available every day of the week and you can even arrange to ‘meet up’ with your larger recovery fellowship.


To finish the day, we will reconvene at 9pm for a one hour meditation.

It won't get better on its own.

Addictions become so ingrained that you hard wire your brain with the negative behavior. It is difficult enough to get sober after addiction and it is even more challenging to stay sober without help.


Sadly, even if you’ve kept up with your job, fulfilling your family duties and maintaining friendships while having a drug or alcohol addiction, eventually, alcohol and drug use will catch up to every high-functioning addict.


And, no one can fight this battle completely on their own.


Let the Manor Born team help you create a new and better life for yourself. The Manor Born Program is an ideal way to empower yourself to make necessary changes.


We will guide you in making more appropriate life choices, recognising poor impulse control, and implementing strategies to develop the necessary course of action to fight the powerful attraction of addiction.
