Tumbelin Farm – Preliminary Outcomes Report  

Baptist Care SA’s Tumbelin Farm is an Innovative Live-In Drug & Alcohol Rehabilitation Program for Young South Australians 

The Farm has now been in full operation for two years since welcoming the first residential client in February 2020.  

Tumbelin Farm’s rehabilitation program is based upon a restorative practice approach and provides a unique opportunity for young people to step away from their situation and begin a journey of change in a safe and supportive community setting.  

The group training and activity program is delivered in a relaxed, rural setting where participants can reconnect with nature and focus on re-building and establishing relationships built on trust, fostering self-confidence and resilience. 

Preliminary analysis of outcome data coupled with stories of positive change, indicate that Tumbelin Farm’s approach to delivering drug and alcohol treatment is producing strong outcomes for young people and their families.  

Outcomes at a glance 

Most young people accessing the Tumbelin Farm program report significant improvement and reduction in their drug and alcohol misuse, but the positive outcomes are much broader than that.
