About - The Glen Logo

The Glen Centre

Central Coast Alcohol and Drug Rehabilitation Centre

In 1994, Ngaimpe Aboriginal Corporation was registered (and set up The Glen). Since that date it has been an example of the triumph of the Koori and the human spirit. The Glen is evidence that dreams can come true. The Glen is proud to be a Central Coast based service that provides Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation opportunities for men (indigenous and non-indigenous from all over NSW).

The founding motivation for The Glen was the suffering of the community at the hands of drugs and alcohol addiction. The Glen was and still is today, especially interested in trying to get men (indigenous and non-indigenous) out of the criminal justice system and into treatment for their drug or alcohol addiction (which causes the offending behaviors).
