A new drug and alcohol residential rehabilitation service will be established at the Eastern View Community Care Unit in Stawell Street, Eureka.
Planning is in its early stages to determine how the facilities will be refurbished and upgraded. It is projected that any capital works will start in early 2018.
An initial information session was held in June to provide local residents with details on the proposed new service.
Following a tender process, the Victorian Government announced in August that the new facility will be operated by Windana Alcohol and Drug Recovery.
A further information session will be held on 11 September from 6.00pm to 7.00pm in the theatre room at the Museum of Australian Democracy - 102 Stawell St South, Eureka. Another session will also be held with the residents of Hemsley Park Retirement Village.
This will provide an opportunity for local residents to hear from and ask questions to Windana about the therapeutic treatment program they deliver to help people develop new skills and make positive life changes.
If you would like to attend, please register your attendance online or by calling (03) 9275 7317.

Residential rehabilitation is one of many Victorian Government-funded alcohol and other drug treatment and support services delivered across the state.
