A new treatment centre for substance abuse, eating disorders and mental health disorders opened at Myocum last Thursday.

The founders of the Nungkari Treatment Centre, David Godden and Kylie Beattie, say the remedy for substance abuse and mental disorders can be found in an integrative holistic approach that merges orthodox methods with complementary holistic therapies.

‘We have brought together a diverse range of highly qualified practitioners that draw from both western and eastern philosophies to provide clients with a treatment program that addresses all aspects of care,’ says managing director Kylie Beattie.

‘Our  team of practitioners comprises psychiatrists, psychologists, doctors, therapists and alternative healthcare workers. They are trained in a variety of modalities such as naturopathy, acupuncture, bodywork, massage, yoga and creative therapies.’

Nungkari’s clinical director David Godden added, ‘We believe in the healing power of nature, which is why we chose to set up in Myocum. We wanted to offer an alternative to the well-documented limitations in short-term programs that are reasonably ineffective when treating addiction and maladaptive behaviours.’

Ms Beattie said Nungkari is the only private centre in Australia specialising in eating disorders. See more at www.nungkaritreatment.com.au.

  1. It’s a shame it’s so expensive, I dont know how they expect the average ice addict to afford to go there to get off the drug.

    • Totally agree mate. The centre seems to have a contact with Corrective Services…maybe get sent sent to jail and you could get in for free! I managed to pay the $900 a day for my daughter with delightful crims there calling her a ‘nigger ‘ all the time. You didn’t miss much it was a waste of money really.
