Northern Territory sobering up shelter service

 

Overview

The Sobering up shelter service is available to people living rough and at risk of harm in the greater Darwin, Palmerston and Katherine areas in the Northern Territory (NT). The shelter provides overnight accommodation to people under the influence of alcohol or other drugs who have been delivered to the shelter by the NT Police or the community Night Patrol service. The service provides short-term, non-custodial, safe shelter for people over the age of 18. No self-admissions are accepted. However, shelter staff will refer people to other services that may be able to assist them.

The Sobering up shelter service uses a range of approaches to help people with alcohol and other drug use issues, including brief interventions and referrals to rehabilitation and medical services.
