No wrong door

Our “no wrong door” policy ensures that people won’t be turned away from our services because they don’t fit into some neat little box; we help and support them to address both their mental health and drug and alcohol concerns through co-locating our psychology and mental health staff at our drug and alcohol offices and centres and employing staff that can help people with both.

Our services

We offer comprehensive drug and alcohol treatment services for people with problematic drug and alcohol issues. We provide treatment across all types of drug use, including cannabis, methamphetamine (ICE), misuse of pharmaceuticals like codeine, solvent misuse (sniffing) and even tobacco.

We provide drug and alcohol counselling, comprehensive assessments, case management and practical support to address other issues that are impacting on your recovery or goals to reduce alcohol or drugs.

We also offer ambulatory withdrawal services (known as detox) by experienced drug and alcohol nurses and coordinate access and referrals for hospital or GP-based withdrawal services and residential rehabilitation services throughout Queensland.

Our approach

We use a harm minimisation approach which means that first and foremost our goal is to assist the person in reducing (minimising) the harmful effects of drugs and alcohol when used in excess, or places a person at risk, for example, health, relationships, employment and the law. 

If the goal is abstinence from drugs and alcohol or the person's life or livelihood is at risk if they don’t give up, then we can help them with that also.

We also assist people with their underlying mental health issues through trauma-informed counselling and referral for more intense psychological services.
