New funding and upgrade for the South East Metropolitan Community Drug Service

Date posted: 17 January 2012

The South East Metropolitan Community Drug Service (SEMCDS) has received state Government funding towards an upgrade and new premises in Thornlie, Western Australia. The SEMCDS was previously operating from two smaller offices in Gosnells and Cannington, but has now merged into a refurbished premise in Thornlie. This will allow people with alcohol and other drug issues living in the area to have access to treatment closer to home, with a larger and more convenient service staffed by counsellors, doctors, nurses and psychologists.

The relocation was made possible by a partnership between Mission Australia and Next Step Drug and Alcohol Services. The development is part of a working relationship between government and non-government organisations, and brings the SEMCDS into line with similar services in the south and north metropolitan areas, making it one of five metropolitan integrated alcohol and other drug services.
