Re-establishment of alcohol and other drug rehabilitation service in Moree

Date posted: 9 April 2015

An alcohol and other drug rehabilitation service is to be set up in the Moree region of New South Wales.

Federal Minister for Indigenous Affairs, Nigel Scullion, said $3 million over two years would be provided by the Commonwealth for this service under the Indigenous advancement strategy.

Funding will go to the Wellington Aboriginal Corporation Health Services and St Vincent de Paul Consortium to deliver alcohol and other drug prevention, education, treatment, rehabilitation and aftercare services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Moree.

The service will provide a 12 week intensive residential rehabilitation program for up to 18 clients at a time - four female and 14 male.
