Drug treatment services provided by Sunraysia Community Health are accessible, non-judgmental and aim to help clients and their families address problematic use of alcohol and other drugs.
We provide a wide range of services, such as counselling, non-residential withdrawal, opiate replacement therapy, indigenous drug diversion, non-residential rehabilitation and youth specific services.
How can it help clients?
Each person is unique in their needs, after assessment an individual, client directed treatment plan is established with the client.
Clinicians work closely with clients engaging and developing the whole person, focusing on harm minimisation strategies and supporting a client to make a change.
We have a team of alcohol and other drug (AOD) counsellors, some of whom specialise in working with young people. They provide counselling and support to people wishing to reduce or cease their substance use. We also provide a home or a hospital detox program to selected clients.
Our nurses support the client when they are withdrawing from substances and are also available to support the client’s GP where the person is deemed suitable for a home based detox. At the client’s request we will provide a referral to residential detox elsewhere.
Anyone who is concerned about their own use of Alcohol and/or Other Drugs or is concerned about a family member’s or friends use.
There is no cost for this service.
