Review: Bulgarr Ngaru is the leading provider of health services to the Bundjalung, Gumbaynggirr and Yaegl people. Alcohol and other drug assessment, treatment and intervention services include medical, social and family support through General Practitioner clinics and substance use management programs. Community-based programs, such as outreach and in-school services, also play an important prevention and early intervention role and are effective in extending a connection to both the young and the elderly and to those not typically engaged with health services. Facilities in Grafton, Casino, Yamba and Maclean.
