WHOS provides therapeutic programs aimed at achieving recovery from alcohol and other drug dependence, incorporating harm reduction and co-existing mental health initiatives. WHOS also provides programs to achieve recovery whilst stabilising on your Opioid Substitution Treatment (OST).
To get started, simply follow the steps below.
1. Step One:
Select the program
Review the following table and links to the different programs that WHOS offers and select the one that is right for you.
2. Step Two:
Initial assessments are carried out over the phone by staff Monday to Thursday 9.00am to 5.00pm.
Phone the program you are interested in for further information and a phone assessment. You can find WHOS phone numbers in the Contact us section. A WHOS staff member will take initial information from you, provide a brief outline of the WHOS program and organise your admission process if appropriate.
3. Step Three:
If we are able to meet your needs, and when a bed becomes available, you will need to attend the facility of choice for an admission assessment, usually followed with immediate admission.
Follow the ‘Admission Information’ to ensure you are fully prepared for your admission to WHOS.
4. Step Four:
Arrive at WHOS for an admission assessment. Further discussion on your treatment options may be necessary and admission to the program will take place if appropriate. Admissions are by appointment only, and no admissions are conducted on Fridays.
