Wandoo Rehabilitation Prison

Wandoo Rehabilitation Prison is a female prison south of Perth.

Wandoo Rehabilitation Prison is WA’s first dedicated alcohol and other drug rehabilitation prison for women in custody. 

The focus of Wandoo is on offering a supportive environment where women can break the cycle of addiction. It offers a safe, healthy, supportive and respectful place to recover and make positive, lasting changes.

Unlike other facilities, it offers dedicated, intensive trauma-informed treatment within a therapeutic community. Women at Wandoo are supported via multi-disciplinary case-management to reduce addiction, improve mental and physical health and reduce the chances of re-offending.
