Alcohol and other Drug Rehabilitation

Alcohol and other Drug Rehabilitation

We provide a range of residential and non-residential withdrawal services for young people and adults.

Our withdrawal services:

  • help people cease or reduce their drug use
  • focus on reducing harm
  • provide a range of withdrawal services including outpatient, home-based and residential
  • provide medical, emotional and pharmacological support
  • links clients with post withdrawal support
  • are not stand alone services and are usually most effective when part of a longer term treatment plan that addresses behaviour change and harm minimisation

Community Residential Drug Withdrawal - Adult

Curran Place

This twelve-bed facility located in Ivanhoe provides residential support to assist adults to withdraw from a range of drug types. The service provides a high level of support and a range of therapeutic and activity based programs. The average length of stay is 7 days and there is an emphasis on post withdrawal support and treatment planning.

Community Residential Drug Withdrawal - Youth

Williams House

This four-bed facility, Williams House, provides withdrawal support and respite for up to four young people aged 12 to 21 years. Like the adult service, the youth service works with general practitioners in the community. The average stay at Williams House is 7-10 days. The program offers a wide range of information, education and activity based programs and has a focus on post withdrawal treatment and support.

Mother and Baby Residential Drug Withdrawal

Our new Mother and Baby unit (co-located at Curran Place) is now open.

The Mother and Baby Withdrawal Unit is the first of its kind in Victoria, and accommodates up to four mothers and their babies. Funded by the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services, the unit has been developed to improve the accessibility and effectiveness of treatment services for mothers who are alcohol and other drug dependent, strengthen parenting skills and reduce risk to children.

How to access services

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.

For further information on any of the withdrawal services programs, please contact our Intake Team on 1800 700 514.
