Westside Lodge is a 20-bed residential rehabilitation facility at Sunshine Hospital in St Albans. The facility supports members of the community recovering from drug and alcohol use and mental ill health.

It provides 24-hour care and support for people experiencing withdrawal or needing stabilisation and offers a person-centred, and recovery-focused model of care.
