Alcohol and Other Drugs Services (AoDS)

GCPHN Commissioned AODS Services

Gold Coast PHN aims to increase access to methamphetamine, alcohol and other drug treatment, and the coordination and integration of care for people, through the commissioning of mainstream and indigenous services.

 

Mainstream services

Lives Lived Well and QuIHN, two well established and experienced mainstream local organisations, have been funded to provide specialist drug and alcohol treatment and support services in the Gold Coast region, with a focus on the Northern Growth Corridor region.

Treatment is available through an outreach model, so people can access support in their homes, community spaces or somewhere of their preference, to overcome barriers people experience in accessing support. Lives Lived Well also has available a service hub in Nerang so people can drop in to find out more about getting help for their, or someone else’s substance use. 

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander service

Krurungal Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Corporation for Welfare, Resource and Housing is funded to deliver a community alcohol and other drug treatment support service to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community across the Gold Coast.

Alcohol and other drugs support workers provide culturally appropriate one-on-one support, referrals, education and case management for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who seek support for their drug and/or alcohol issues. Krurungal works closely with mental health and drug and alcohol professionals at Kalwun Health Service who can provide clinical support.
