Restoring the Lives of Men and Families
Betel Shalom Australia is a residential rehabilitation centre located in the heart of the Yarra Valley in Melbourne, Victoria.
We offer a holistic rehabilitation program that focuses on bringing restoration to all areas of the resident’s life, including finances, relationships, heart issues, employment, education and training for the future. Our program is practical and hands-on, ensuring that residents and all involved in Betel Shalom are valued and contributing members of the community. We offer our services to anyone with a life-controlling issue, whether it be an addiction to substances such as drugs and alcohol or people with anxiety, fear or emotional trauma.
We use (with permission) the Shalom House (Perth) program, which is known to be the strictest rehabilitation centre in Australia. With its no-nonsense approach, many non-negotiable boundaries and strict rules for the residents to abide by, Betel Shalom ensures they all move through the program as fast as possible whilst at the same time making sure they receive as much from the program as possible.
The founder of Shalom House rehabilitation centre, Peter Lyndon-James, understands the need for rehabilitation and how hard it is to break free from life controlling issues, having himself come from a background of 26 years in addiction. Peter comes from a broken home, he has been institutionalised from the age of nine and addicted to drugs for most of his life. His struggle to break free from the life that held him captive was a process that taught him a great deal. Peter now uses what he has learned to help set others free from what held him captive for so many years.
Betel Shalom rehabilitation centre in Victoria is founded on Christian Principles and at present caters for up to 40 people across two properties, staffed by qualified and trained personnel. Our staff and volunteers do their utmost in caring for our clients, making them and their progress our priority.
"Former drug addict of 28 years now helping her son overcome the same addiction"
For almost three decades Jo-Anne Mclaren was stuck in a world of drugs, a path she is now helping her son escape as he wrestles with the same problem.
For decades Ms Mclaren tried everything to get better. She went to counselling, rehab, and tried medication, but nothing seemed to work.
