An Aboriginal alcohol and other drug (AOD) rehabilitation treatment service is to open in Murray Bridge, South Australia, in the coming months.
Uniting Communities, a not-for-profit organisation which provides AOD services and programs around the State, announced the opening of the new service last week.
Uniting Communities intensive support services Group Manager, Daniel Moss, said clients accessing the rehabilitation treatment service would be supported in all aspects of their lives. 'We're looking for suitable accommodation at the moment and undergoing community consultation,' he said.
Three residential rehabilitation houses will be established, one each for men, women and families.
The rehabilitation treatment service will work on a community connection model; Uniting Communities will work closely with local Aboriginal communities to ensure people remain connected to family and the community, while helping clients overcome dependence on alcohol and other drugs.
Uniting Communities will also create employment opportunities for AOD workers within the region.
