Non-Residential Withdrawal

Non-Residential Withdrawal (NRW) is a program that supports people to safely withdraw from substances while staying in the community, instead of being admitted to a residential withdrawal service. The Non-Residential Withdrawal staff are registered nurses skilled in AOD withdrawal. Staff can work closely with you and your General Practitioner (doctor) to put a safe and supported withdrawal plan in place. We also work in an outreach capacity, meaning our nurses can come to your home to support and monitor your progress. They will work with you to support a reduction to your alcohol and other drug use, work towards improved health and wellbeing, develop a post-withdrawal plan, and help with links to ongoing treatment supports and services. This service is most appropriate if you stable living conditions and adequate supports in the community to support you during the withdrawal process (such as family and friends). We can also work with you in a stepped-care approach, helping you get ready for an admission to one of our residential services, or helping you step-out of a residential withdrawal service back into the community. If you have any questions about eligibility or need more information, please contact. 

Post-withdrawal support

After you have completed withdrawal, there are many different support and treatment options available to you. Therapeutic support is available on an individual basis, through our Care and Recovery Co-Ordinators or AOD Counsellors. Group support is available through the Peer Support Group and Catalyst and Torque Day-Rehabilitation Programs. Please click on any of the services listed for more information.
