Set amongst tranquil grounds in Dunedin, New Zealand, Ashburn Clinic offers a supportive therapeutic community for those suffering from mental health or addiction difficulties. We focus on treating underlying issues to improve patient well-being and quality of life.
Cloaked in the forests of Halfway Bush, just beyond Dunedin, Ashburn Clinic is a not-for-profit rehabilitation facility offering a professional, supportive environment for the diagnosis, comprehensive treatment, and recovery from mental illness or addiction.
We work to assist people toward healthy lives and behaviour patterns, developing the tools needed to overcome difficult situations. Together, we aim to learn more about our personal challenges and struggles in order to improve the ability to effect personal change.
We’re nationally recognised for our specialised treatment programming that encourages people from all walks of life to join us on a path of recovery. Are you ready to take the first step?
“I have tried other treatment places but nothing has been as life changing and good as coming to Ashburn. Ashburn is about looking at who you are, working through the past, changing and being supported to move on. My work here has meant I won’t continue my cycle through the system.”
– A Former Resident
Established in 1882, Ashburn Clinic serves as a therapeutic community providing funded and private residential treatment for those suffering from mental health issues. We employ psychiatrists, psychotherapists, nurses, occupational therapists, mental health workers, general practitioners, a dietitian and support staff.
“It truly is hard work but it is not impossible. You just can’t give up! There will be numerous times where you’ll probably want to and you’ll feel like being here is the hardest thing on earth, but you know what? You’ve made it this far and you can make this work. You’re not alone. You’re not alone!”
