Consumers and carers, let's talk about local alcohol and drug services

Tuesday, 8 October 2019

Are you a health professional in south eastern Melbourne? This consultation opportunity may suit some of your clients who are eager to share their experiences. 

The South Eastern Melbourne Primary Health Network (SEMPHN), invites consumers and carers to be part of an important conversation about local alcohol and drug services.

SEMPHN funds a range of treatment programs throughout south-eastern Melbourne that support people in their recovery from alcohol and/or drug misuse.

SEMPHN understands that more can be done to improve the quality of services for people affected by alcohol and drugs, as well as their families and carers. SEMPHN would like to learn about your experiences with local alcohol and drug services while exploring what has worked for you, what could be done better and what you think an ideal treatment service would look like.

We don’t expect you to come up with the solution. We do, however, hope to gain a much better understanding of some of the real challenges experienced when seeking alcohol and drug treatment, or caring for someone who is affected by alcohol and/or drugs. This information will help SEMPHN focus its efforts to address these challenges.

We are running four separate sessions across south-eastern Melbourne:
