The Pilbara Community Alcohol and Drug Service, provided by Mission Australia, offers a range of services that assist individuals and communities to address drug and alcohol use and strives to increase the wellbeing of people living in the Pilbara Region of Western Australia.
The service aims to engage directly with individuals, families and communities to:
- Prevent problems arising from alcohol and other drug use
- Provide treatment support for people struggling with their wellbeing
- Community support to assist communities in becoming more resilient in coping with the effects of alcohol and other drugs
- Services provided by the Pilbara Community Alcohol and Drug Service are focused on not only reducing levels of alcohol and drug related harm, but improving the general health and wellbeing, relationships, engagement, and general living conditions within Pilbara communities. From the service locations in South Hedland, Karratha, Newman and Tom Price, Clinical Case Managers engage with small and remote communities through outreach trips.
