The Buttery is a not-for-profit, charitable, community based organisation. It is located at Binna Burra near Bangalow in the Byron Bay hinterland in Northern NSW, Australia. The Buttery specialises in the treatment of alcohol and other drug misuse and mental health issues.

Our Mission: To enrich people’s lives and connect communities through a continuum of support for people affected by substance use disorders, mental health issues and addiction.

The Buttery has two residential addiction rehab programs and a separate wellbeing program. It also operates community outreach programs in the NSW Mid-North Coast and Northern Rivers Regions.

The Buttery’s long-term residential treatment program operates as a Therapeutic Community. There the community of residents itself is the main vehicle for promoting personal change through self-help and mutual support. This program also includes access to transition houses for those who complete either the three-month or seven-and-a-half month residential program. Co-located with the residential treatment program, The Buttery also conducts MTA, a residential rehab program for people with the desire to move from taking legally prescribed opioid substitutes to a drug free lifestyle.

The Buttery Private is a short-term, intensive early intervention, user-pays, residential program. It is conducted at a separate location from The Buttery. It provides support for those suffering symptoms of anxiety, drug misuse, alcohol misuse and other issues affecting health & well being.

The Buttery’s community outreach services cover wide areas of the NSW Mid-North Coast and Northern Rivers Regions from Port Macquarie in the south to Tweed Heads in the north and west to Grafton and Nimbin. These are:
