Mei came to us as a client and ended up staying with us for almost 2 years as a volunteer and support worker until her journey took her off to new adventures.
Volunteering is an opportunity for some clients who finish a 16 week programme at Siam Rehab to stay on longer at a reduced fee.
Siam Rehab volunteers are clients who have done exceptionally well and it is believed by the therapeutic team that they will be a benefit to the new arrivals. They also get a chance to learn new skills and build on their own recovery adding additional clean time in a safe and secure environment.
Volunteering at Siam Rehab is not guaranteed and only offered to clients with useful skills or ambition that we believe will be an asset to the community.
Some past clients have transitioned to a paid position at the centre as full time employees in the past. This will generally take at least a year and you will have to prove yourself.
52 Week programme, 16 weeks treatment and 36 weeks as a volunteer $55,000 (Please note you need to be accepted as a volunteer, completing treatment does not guarantee a place in this programme.)
*Note: This programme does not need to be 1 year and the above is just an example.
