Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) Counselling
The Turning Point Alcohol and Other Drug counselling team work with individuals to help change harmful AOD use behaviour. Clients are supported to learn harm reduction and relapse prevention strategies, and are collaborated with to develop recovery plans that address their needs.
Counselling can be provided face-to-face, online or via telephone.
People aged 18 and over who are seeking support for AOD related issues from public AOD services. People under the age of 18 may be referred to a youth AOD service.
Our counselling team are able to respond to people from across Victoria, however we may re-direct an individual to another counselling service in closer geographical proximity if this is considered helpful.
You can self-refer by calling the intake number on 1800 778 278 during business hours (Monday-Friday, 9.00am-5.00pm).
Varies depending on volume of requests, usual waiting period is one week.
