BARWON THERAPEUTIC COMMUNITY REHABILITATION FACILITY
Modscape was selected as the modular provider for a 30-bed residential rehabilitation facility in Corio, Victoria. Operated by Windana Drug & Alcohol Recovery Limited, the facility provides the people of Barwon and surrounding communities better access to specialist drug and alcohol treatment.
In collaboration with the Victorian Health Building Authority and Vincent Chrisp Architects, we delivered this 37-module project as part of a $52.1 million investment into new alcohol and other drug residential rehabilitation facilities in regional Victoria.
The BTC offers a six-month program for AOD rehabilitation, with the approach informed by five core elements: work, education, therapy, health and peer support. Located on a five-acre site, the facility has plenty of space for residents to breathe and relax, with outdoor gardens and recreation spaces located throughout. A central sweep of eucalyptus trees gives the setting a peaceful, natural character.
‘Better design’ is one of our pillars, and this has never been more important as more research is conducted into the effects that our environments have on us – both physically and mentally. We recognise that better design ultimately results in patients’ improved mental health, sped-up recovery timelines, and a minimised requirement for medication.
