Increasing residential rehabilitation service delivery across Victoria – a new facility in the Grampians
In addition to implementing the above initiatives, the department is also working hard on implementing 2016-17 Budget funding to support the creation of 20 beds in the Grampians region which will give more Victorians access to residential drug rehabilitation.
The facility will be located on the site of the existing Eastern View Community Care Unit in Ballarat and, as announced by the Minister for Mental Health on 30 August, Windana Drug and Alcohol Recovery has been named as the successful service provider following a competitive tender process.
An initial community information session was held in June 2017, providing interested community members with a broad overview of the project, and an opportunity to ask questions about alcohol and other drug rehabilitation services. Future community information sessions to be held later in 2017. In the meantime, for more information visit New residential treatment service.
