Boomerang caring program

 

Overview

The Boomerang caring program is run by a local Bundjalung Goorie man through Dharah Gibinj Casino Aboriginal Medical Service. The program aims to provide a safe, confidential, and supportive healing place for all Aboriginal people affected by alcohol and other drugs, in the communities surrounding Casino in NSW.

The program offers: education and awareness programs in schools and communities; one to one case management counselling with clients (yarn up); arrangements for intake and referral; and crisis intervention.
