General Community Treatment and Support Services

The aim of treatment and support is to provide people with the necessary psychological and physical resources to help them change their own behaviours, or support others affected by drug and alcohol use. Activities can include counselling, help with reducing or stopping use, as well as strategies to improve relationships and develop life skills.

WAPHA currently funds the following organisations to deliver community treatment and support services:
