Victoria’s specialist alcohol and other drug treatment services are available to all Victorians regardless of where they live. Around 40,000 Victorians currently access treatment services each year. A broad spectrum of community-based and residential treatment options are provided by a skilled and dedicated workforce that is passionate about providing excellent and effective services to the people who need them.
Alcohol and other drug treatment is delivered through a number of treatment streams within each catchment area. These treatment streams include intake, counselling, withdrawal, rehabilitation and pharmacotherapy. These treatment streams are also supported by a separate planning function, led by a funded service provider in each catchment.
People who require treatment, information or advice for alcohol and drug-related issues should contact DirectLine on 1800 888 236 or their local Intake and Assessment provider.
