Alcohol mandatory treatment expands in Katherine

Date posted: 1 May 2014

The Country Liberals Government has chosen a site for a new multi-million dollar Alcohol mandatory treatment facility in Katherine, as part of its plan to tackle alcohol use across the Northern Territory (NT).

'Alcohol mandatory treatment is an important part of our suite of measures that are working to tackle chronic alcohol abuse in the NT,' Minister for Alcohol Rehabilitation, Robyn Lambley, said.

'I am pleased to announce that we have chosen a site for a new Alcohol mandatory treatment facility in Katherine, at a cost of at least $4 million. By building this secure facility, we can expand the number of people who can access treatment in the town, giving them the chance to turn their lives around and re-connect with their family and community.'

Between January and March, 104 people were referred to Alcohol mandatory treatment.
