Ngunnawal Bush Healing Farm

The ATSIEB requested that the ACT Government outline what it intends to do to provide an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Drug and Alcohol Residential Rehabilitation Service in the ACT. This request follows the confirmation by the ACT Government that the Ngunnawal Bush Healing Farm facility built in the Tidbinbilla Valley at a cost of $12 million dollars, will be used to deliver a place of healing that addresses the root cause of addiction and substance abuse amongst Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the ACT.
