We provide a range of residential and non-residential withdrawal services for young people and adults.
Our withdrawal services:
All our treatment and support services are free. There are fees for some of our training and educational group programs.
The Outpatient Withdrawal Service assists people who experience mild to moderate withdrawal and who can be appropriately managed without admission to a residential service. The service is provided by a registered nurse who works with general practitioners in the community to monitor withdrawal symptoms, provide information and support and link clients to appropriate post withdrawal services.
The Homebased Withdrawal Service works with young people and adults to provide a safe withdrawal in the comfort and security of the client's home. It is provided in conjunction with general practitioners in the community. Registered nurses monitor withdrawal symptoms, provide information and support to clients and family members and link clients to appropriate post withdrawal services.
Our Catalyst and Torque programs provide a six-week model for people who have completed withdrawal from alcohol or other drugs. They enable participants to practise new skills each day in their home environments and build new patterns of thinking and behaviour.
As part of the changes to the Victorian AOD treatment system, people with particularly complex needs may be eligible for additional support from a Care and Recovery Co-ordinator to assist their entry into treatment and connect with other services to help build on progress made during treatment.
Our Triage service is the first point of contact for clients, families and workers for all enquiries about our treatment programs. Triage staff can conduct initial screening, refer clients to an appropriate service and follow up on referrals. Interpreters can be arranged through speaking with a triage worker.
our experienced clinicians undertake comprehensive psycho-social assessments for people accessing withdrawal and/or counselling services.
