*Due to current COVID-19 restrictions most of our services will now be delivered via telehealth. Where relevant, your treatment team will inform you of the best method of treatment delivery for you.

Our specialist addiction clinics provide holistic client-centred assessment, management planning and/or short-term care for people affected by alcohol and other drug use or addictive behaviours (e.g. gambling). Face to face appointments can be attended at either our Statewide (Richmond) or Box Hill (Carrington Road) sites. Assessments can be organised via tele-health for those residing in rural or regional settings.
