We’re taking AOD support to rural NSW

Roadmaps Launch

Western NSW PHN CEO, Andrew Harvey (left) with the Member for Parkes, Mark Coulton (fifth from left) joined us to celebrate the launch of Roadmaps.

Help to address drug and alcohol concerns is now closer at hand for those living in regional and rural NSW, with the launch of our new Roadmaps service.

Roadmaps is a mobile day support program providing intensive one-on-one and group counselling for adults in Nyngan, Wellington, Gilgandra and Warren. Each person can attend the free program for two days per week over six weeks.

The program is funded by the Western NSW PHN and the Australian Government. We were delighted to have the Federal Member for Parkes, Mark Coulton, and Western NSW PHN CEO, Andrew Harvey, officially launch the program in Dubbo on 14 June.

Speaking at the launch, Mr Coulton commended Lives Lived Well for introducing a service which is “mentoring people in their own communities to try and get through issues relating to drugs and alcohol”.

People entering the program will complete a comprehensive assessment, including a mental health assessment. Sessions will address concerns around alcohol and drug dependence, mental health, harm reduction, overdose and relapse prevention and family education.
