Sobering-up shelter (Koori Community Alcohol and Drug Resource Service)

 

Overview

Run by Koori Community Alcohol (KCA) and Drug Resource Service (DRS), this program provides a non-threatening sobering-up environment for Aboriginal people that are found under the influence of alcohol or other drugs in public areas in Victoria. It constitutes an alternative to incarceration and offers referral to related services if needed. This sobering-up shelter program is implemented in six different health centres.
