Drug and Alcohol Services
WNSW PHN funds two main drug and alcohol 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.
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. Daybreak supports high risk drinkers to change their behavior through combined elements of assessment, brief intervention, motivational interviewing, CBT, peer support and clinical support.
