Ngara Nura Program

 

Overview

The Ngara Nura Program is a 12-week pre-release therapeutic community course based at the Long Bay Correctional Complex, in Sydney, New South Wales (NSW). The program is offered to inmates who might be struggling with alcohol and other drug (AOD) use, and will be soon be up for release from prison.

The program aims to teach inmates to become aware of themselves, their habits of thinking, and to use this knowledge to make different choices. A key theme that is taught to inmates is the notion of acceptance, where they're encouraged to come to terms with situations that may have affected them in their life.
