St Vincent’s promotes well-being and harm-minimisation for people who have a drug and alcohol addiction. By offering a range of telephone and face-to-face services, the St Vincent’s Alcohol and Drug Service provides targeted care and treatments to those in need.
- Gorman Unit is a specialist ward that cares for patients with a drug and alcohol addiction. This newly refurbished 20-bed residential medical unit will support patients through withdrawals.
- Rankin Court provides treatment for opiate dependence, by reducing or eliminating the use. Services include drug assessment, daily supervised dosing of medathone, mental health care and support and community support.
- Telephone helplines support patients around the state with opioid, stimulant and cannabis addictions. Run by St Vincent’s, these services provide information, referrals and advice.
Donations are needed to support these drug and alcohol withdrawal and management programs at St Vincent’s. Your support will supplement the existing government funding, to offer more services to a greater number of patients around the clock.Donate now
