What we do:

BushMob run a 20 bed residential treatment facility with some unfunded beds for which we charge a fee for service.

Our Vision

Journeys are made in Central Australia by, and for, young people to get the self-respect, trust and courage and skill to have a good life because grog, sniffing, drugs and crime are no good. (Our vision developed by Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal young people and families in meetings under trees and in dry creek beds in and around Alice Springs)

A Message from the BushMob CEO – Will MacGregor

Interesting times beginning with thanks to Keith and Melissa for the beautiful new web page.

BushMob wouldn’t exist without the hard work and humanity of all our staff across Residential, Bush Adventure Therapy, Media, Children and Schooling and DTR Horse/Culture/Healing. BushMob has always represented a collaboration of personal and community interests around being responsible and realistic mentors for young people. A safety net with attitude.

People often mistakenly believe that the “problems” are only with marginalized, remote based Young People. This is selective thinking and is convenient to governments and policy makers in further isolating the problem and its solutions.

As a nation we have Young People from all States and Territories who have become “Shadow People”, neglected or ignored who are already facing tough futures across being educated, making OK choices and finding work.

Bushmob has been developed to be a simple way of creating safety and support as Young People develop across childhood to adolescence into early adulthood.

Key words to the program are; long term, intergenerational, multiple entry and exit.

I was honoured to receive the Australian of the Year Northern Territory 2016 Award because of the above.

I will use this opportunity on behalf of all young Australians and families as we face issues with drug and alcohol,not just in the bush, but across Australia .

Will MacGregor

CEO BushMob

NT Australian of the Year 2016

A huge congratulations to our CEO, Will MacGregor, on being announced as the NT Australian of the year. Your hard work has been noticed by more than just your staff and the other services we work with. We are all so very proud of you.

Facility

BushMob runs a residential program for young people aged 12 to 25 years of age, wanting to get their lives back on track without alcohol, drugs or sniffing. The program is based in Alice Springs.

The BushMob residential service provides:
•24 hour care
•case management
•counselling, brief interventions and life skill development programs
•education and training, and positive life choices

The program allows each participant the option of a support person who can stay with them for a few days when they begin the program. The BushMob residential program requires the participants to undertake alcohol and other drug assessments, receive medical checkups and receive counselling.

The BushMob residential program is a very unique program, tailored to meet the needs of young people living in Central Australia.
