Drug and Alcohol Treatment Program

Our priorities

Our PHN's Drug and Alcohol Needs Assessment identifies a range of Local Government Areas within the region which have populations experiencing greater levels of related harm than state and national averages.

A key priority is to identify opportunities to support more integrated responses across the Drug and Alcohol Treatment system, including:

  • More treatment and support services where current access is limited, particularly pre and post residential treatment programs
  • Prioritised resourcing for treatment and support for identified at risk and vulnerable populations
  • Access, reach and effectiveness of existing services to address ever-increasing demand for treatment
  • Increased service delivery capacity of the Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Sector in providing culturally-appropriate, holistic treatment and support.
