Lyndon Community working to open new program at Dubbo

Date posted: 17 December 2014

Alcohol and other drug (AOD) service provider, The Lyndon Community, is working with Dubbo-based organisations to work towards bringing a similar program to Dubbo, New South Wales.

Lyndon Community has been working with organisations across government and non-government including the legal sector in Dubbo to develop suitable AOD treatment options for the Dubbo community, said Lyndon Community CEO, Ed Zarnow. 'We go to Dubbo, but only very sporadically because we only have limited services out there,' he said. 'There is currently no adult rehab or withdrawal service in Dubbo.

'Lyndon Community with support of legal and Aboriginal agencies and after consultation with local health clinicians has recently submitted an application to establish a drug and alcohol day rehabilitation program in Dubbo.

'The Indigenous advancement strategy funding from Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet has identified drug and alcohol services as a necessary part of the strategy.'

The outcome of the tender is expected to be known around March 2015.
