A new-look Lives Lived Well Specialist Centre was launched on Thursday 2 November 2017.
Previously known as Banjara, the Burleigh Heads centre provides alcohol and drug and mental health support from a range of specialists all housed under one roof. The centre’s team of private practitioners includes psychologists, psychiatrists, a GP and other allied health care specialists.
Run by not-for-profit organisation, Lives Lived Well, the centre’s revamp includes the release of its new website, new management, re-branding and a refurbishment.
Gold Coast Primary Health Network CEO Matt Carrodus conducted the launch, which also included an education session for clinicians.
Member for Burleigh, Michael Hart MP has spoken out in support of the centre’s revamp, saying: “I have long been a supporter of Lives Lived Well, and I cannot stress enough the quality work that they do, and the high regard in which they are held in the community.
“I really commend the way Lives Lived Well assists individuals reassess their approach to life and to alter their attitudes towards mental health and drug and alcohol abuse.
“By providing a one stop shop, the specialist centre will be able to continue their unparalleled service to the community.”
Lives Lived Well CEO Mitchell Giles said the revitalised specialist centre would continue to offer professional and non-judgmental support to people who had problems with drugs or alcohol and mental health concerns.
“With a GP on site, assessments and referrals to our specialist practitioners can all happen in one safe place, meaning a patient can be treated in a holistic manner without having to travel between centres,” Mr Giles said.
Patients who hold concession cards can access bulk billing through Medicare.
The centre is located at 191 West Burleigh Road, Burleigh Heads. To call the centre, phone 5508 0950 or visit its new website at: www.llwspecialistcentre.org.au
