Alcohol and other drug treatment services

Victoria’s specialist alcohol and other drug treatment services are available to all Victorians regardless of where they live. Around 40,000 Victorians currently access treatment services each year. A broad spectrum of community-based and residential treatment options are provided by a skilled and dedicated workforce that is passionate about providing excellent and effective services to the people who need them.

Alcohol and other drug treatment is delivered through a number of treatment streams across Victoria. These treatment streams include intake, counselling, withdrawal, rehabilitation and pharmacotherapy. They are also supported by a separate planning function, led by a funded service provider in each catchment.

People who require treatment, information or advice for alcohol and drug-related issues may contact DirectLine on 1800 888 236 or their local intake provider.
