Alcohol & Other Drugs Services

WNSW PHN funds two main Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) treatment activities; mainstream service delivery, and Indigenous service delivery. These are referral-based services, including screening, counselling, brief intervention and education for families and carers. They also cover capacity building for General Practice and social services to engage with people with substance abuse issues.

Although both programs indicate a focus on mainstream or Indigenous services, neither are seen to be exclusive to either.

Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) and Lives Lived Well provide Mainstream services in the Dubbo, Cobar and Broken Hill hubs.

The Weigelli Centre provide Indigenous services in the Walgett, Bourke and Parkes hubs.

Hello Sunday Morning 'Daybreak' Program

Daybreak is an online program supported by WNSW PHN designed to help individuals reduce their harmful alcohol consumption through a range of evidence-based support.
