Wandoo Rehabilitation Prison

Wandoo Rehabilitation Prison is WA’s first dedicated Alcohol and other Drug (AOD) rehabilitation prison for women in custody.

The focus of Wandoo is on offering a supportive environment where women can break the cycle of addiction. It offers a safe, healthy, supportive and respectful place to recover and make positive, lasting changes.

Unlike other facilities, it offers dedicated, intensive trauma-informed treatment within a therapeutic community. Women at Wandoo are supported via multi-disciplinary case-management to reduce addiction, improve mental and physical health and reduce the chances of re-offending.

AOD use will be monitored using objective measures to uphold a drug-free approach.

Women at Wandoo will be offered transitional and post-release support for their ongoing rehabilitation and abstinence.

Wandoo has a campus-style layout with low-rise accommodation, communal kitchens, laundries and sports facilities set in gardens.
