Third Stage Treatment is a natural progression from secondary treatment, providing clients with the opportunity to begin independent living in the community with a support network behind them at all times. 

This strengthens the practical foundations of living in the community clean and sober. Clients continue to live in one of ANA’s centrally located houses but are responsible for their own timetable balancing therapeutic time at the Centre with time in the community.
