The Solaris Therapeutic Community is operated in partnership with ACT Corrective Services.
Solaris is a voluntary treatment program for adult males in the Alexander Maconochie Centre (AMC) who have alcohol and/or other drug dependence issues.
Solaris aims to provide a safe and supportive learning environment where participants can explore their emotions, beliefs and behaviours to affect positive personal change.
Participants are involved in educational and therapeutic groups, supported with strategies to recognise and reduce harms, prevent relapse and understand the links between their criminal activity and drug use.
We recognise the high-risk period immediately post release from incarceration and as such, the Solaris Outreach program was developed to support our participants to continue their recovery journey and minimise this risk.
