Velocity Transformations is an evidence-based, long-term (12 Months+), alcohol and other drugs (AOD) residential treatment service based in Hobart, Tasmania.

As part of a national network of similar rehabs, in Hobart we are a 22-bed service and treat adult men and women.

The program is based off a model with decades of experience in its program delivery. The program is evidence-based, aligning its courseware to the National Co-morbidity Guidelines, in a Christian-faith supported setting. A faith background or belief is not a pre-requisite to admission and we welcome people from all walks of life to participate.

A Therapeutic Community to Affect Real Change

The TC model is the most widely used treatment model in the world for residential AOD services. The TC model generates life-long behavioral change, supported by peers, who are on their own journey of freedom from addiction.

Therapeutic communities focus on the whole person and overall lifestyle changes, not just abstinence from drug/alcohol use. The community itself, through self-help and mutual support, is the principal means for promoting personal change. This is reflected in the environment, which is akin to a home as opposed to an institution or hospital.
