Alcohol and Other Drugs
SEMPHN’s Needs Assessment (2019) has identified that substance use and misuse is higher in areas of south eastern Melbourne than it is in the rest of Victoria.
SEMPHN commissions support and treatment services to address this, including a range of tailored services to support people affected by alcohol and other drug use.
For information on how to refer to SEMPHN services, call SEMPHN’s Access & Referral team on 1800 862 363 (8.30am – 4.30pm, weekdays).
Who have we commissioned?
|Provide AOD outreach services to hospitals in the SEMPHN catchment||Taskforce|
|The Alcohol and Drug Liaison Outreach Worker (ADLOW) program works with hospital networks to raise awareness of AOD treatment services while increasing the level of counselling and support available to clients in the period between self-identification of substance misuse and access to mainstream support. This program will also help improve client discharge planning and referral processes after a hospitalisation, and work with generalist providers to identify barriers and develop referral pathways to improve access.|
