Peter Lyndon-James is a former ice addict and criminal who now runs ‘the nation’s strictest’ drug rehabilitation centre.
At Shalom House in Perth, addicts agree to go ‘cold turkey’ off all drugs including cigarettes, get their heads shaved and go to Christian church services three times a week.
The “cold-turkey” detox and Peter’s approach to rehabilitation has been considered controversial by some, but for many it’s changing their life for the better.
