Activity 2 – Outclient Treatment Services

Project Status: Approved and Commenced

Darling Downs and West Moreton PHN will continue to commission local alcohol and other drugs (AOD) treatment organisations to provide outclient treatment services, increasing the accessibility and capacity of these organisations.

As identified in the Non-Government Organisation (NGO) Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) Services Report prepared by the Queensland Network of Alcohol and other Drug Agencies (QNADA), outclient services are needed in the Darling Downs and West Moreton region.

These include:

  • non-residential day stay rehabilitation services;
  • relapse prevention – aftercare/follow-up services;
  • case management; and
  • outclient counselling.

To provide these services, funding was made available to organisations with a proven track record of providing track record of delivering drug and alcohol treatment services (DATS).

Opportunities are aimed at increasing capacity to deliver services through:

  • an extension of existing services;
  • the establishment of a new service location; or
  • the provision of outreach services.

Referrals are made into these services via Hospital and Health Services (HHS), general practice, NGOs and self-referral.

Where appropriate, clients are transitioned into residential rehabilitation and withdrawal management services.

Likewise, clients may be referred from residential rehabilitation and withdrawal management services into these outclient services as part of relapse prevention community care.
