Kainos Addiction Treatment Centre

Mental Health & Addictions Service


Kainos is a private drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre providing an individualised 12-step programme, with the goal of achieving and maintaining long term sobriety. We approach this with a multi-layered holistic view, education, spiritual, mental, and physical, along with ongoing support and robust aftercare. 

All our bedrooms are private and well-appointed with a personal ensuite bathroom and large walk-in wardrobe. Our large landscaped gardens provide an ideal space to rest and relax and we are just 5 minutes away from the beautiful Long Bay regional park and beach. We take full advantage of this with daily morning walks and regular recreational group outings.


Our highly qualified and devoted team of professionals, most of whom have lived experience in addiction and recovery, provide you with a safe, comfortable, and supportive environment within our therapeutic community. Meet our team here
