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 program, which gets no government funding, is proving successful, turning seemingly intractable criminals and addicts into "geeks" - upstanding, productive members of society. Lyndon-James ran a big drug-dealing operation in Western Australia and went to jail on drugs charges until radically changing his life in 2000. In the past four years, Shalom House has seen rapid growth from just a few men to now nearly 80 residents. But not all of them are happy with the strictness of the program.

Karen Carey is a Perth woman who grew up with a relatively simple heart problem. But when it came time for an operation to install an artificial heart valve, everything that could go wrong did. At the age of thirty-four, Karen had a stroke after taking her twin sons to school. The valve was removed and another one made of pig tissue implanted. To discover what went wrong, Karen risked everything on a court case. When the case failed, she embarked on a new career as a consumer health advocate, intent on creating a better accountability framework to protect patients when medical devices fail.

As we celebrate NAIDOC Week, Australian Story delves into the largely untold story of Uncle Ossie Cruse, a driving force for Aboriginal rights for more than 50 years. With only a primary school education and having lived as an itinerant worker for years, Uncle Ossie stepped into the world of politics after the 1967 referendum, which saw Indigenous Australians counted in the census for the first time. He was a quiet but persistent negotiator with a knack for getting politicians to come to the table and to listen to the concerns of his people. He took his advocacy all the way to the United Nations and became a member of the World Council of Indigenous People.

Tyler Wright was destined to be a future world champion surfer. At just 14 she overtook multiple champions, some twice her age, to become the youngest-ever winner of a championship tour event. But the pressure of growing up "on tour" took its toll. Were it not for a timely conversation with her older brother, Owen, also a professional surfer, she may have quit her career at just 18. Over the following three years, Tyler developed a reputation for her carefree attitude to competing. Then, after a semifinal loss in 2015, she had an epiphany: she did want to win. But her quest for a world title was thrown into turmoil when Owen Wright suffered a serious brain injury at the treacherous Pipeline break in Hawaii. At 21, Tyler became her brother's primary carer. She felt at a crossroads. Should she quit the tour to be by her brother's side, or leave him to chase her dream of the world title?
