Australians now have the option to access their superannuation early for drug and alcohol rehab.
This means rather than pay out-of-pocket for treatment you can opt to use your superannuation early release funds.
At Lanna Rehab we understand cost can be a major factor when deciding to pursue treatment. For many people, by the time they are in the right mindset to seek help, they no longer have means to pay for it. With this in mind, we are pleased to support flexible payment options.
``I was at a very low point before I came to Lanna Rehab,`` says Keith* 42-years-old from Manly, New South Wales.
Keith, pictured here with CEO Darren Lockie, struggled with addiction for years.
“I was at an extreme low. I’d lost my car, my house, my job and just about everything I care about. I even needed to blow a breathaliser to see my daughter.”
For Keith “going to rehab without superannuation was simply not an option. I had tried 4 rehabs in New South Wales before I came here. The government-funded options were just not that good. The rooms were bunk beds and the therapists were university students. I had also tried private rehabs and the 4 or 5 weeks I did felt more like a very expensive break, because they didn’t give me the skills I needed to maintain sobriety, they just basically kept me clean while I was there.”
Many Australians, like Keith, struggle to find – and maintain – sobriety without holisitc in-treatment recovery. Rehab is intensive. It involves daily therapy sessions and immersive experience with a community full of people who are also in recovery.
Please note: The amount covered by superannuation can cover all meals, accommodation, pyschotherapy and weekend excursions.
Any early access to superannuation should be discussed with your investment advisor to be sure you understand the financial implications of early superannuation release.
``The standard of care here, the therapy team, the facilities is all wonderful. From the moment they picked me up at the airport with a sign that had my name on it, they made me feel like I mattered.``
