Holyoake is a leading non-government provider of alcohol and other drug treatment services in Western Australia. Offering a wide range of evidence-based programs across Western Australia, Holyoake enables lasting change for thousands of individuals, families and communities impacted by alcohol, other drugs and mental health issues. All programs have been designed with a holistic, non-judgemental approach and provided in a safe and caring environment.

Over the past 2 decades, Holyoake has been building its Mental Health capacity, delivering those services in conjunction with Alcohol and Other Drug services. Our vision is to empower people to change their lives and make better futures possible.

John Keating, with his friend Anita Day, established Holyoake in 1975 to offer more holistic services to people affected by alcohol and drugs, and their families. John was determined to find a better way to address ‘problem drinking’, generally treated as a disease in the early seventies.

From the very outset, the Holyoake approach achieved excellent outcomes and was welcomed by clients and the community sector. The next year, Holyoake received the Jaycee Award for Better Communities 1976.

Four decades on, that bold vision has stood the test of time with thousands of people experiencing the benefits of Holyoake’s approach.
