SOUTH-WEST people who need drug and alcohol services will still receive high quality care following a change in agency structure, the director of Western Region Alcohol and Drug Centre has promised.
The changes came into effect this week.
As part of the new arrangement, the newly-formed Great South Coast Drug and Alcohol Treatment Services consortium will provide counselling, care and recovery, and non-residential withdrawal services.
WRAD is the lead agency in the consortium, which also includes Portland District Health (Glenelg Southern Grampians Drug Treatment Services), South West Healthcare, Great South Coast Medicare Local, and Brophy Family and Youth Services.
