Drug and Alcohol Services - NSW Government—Health—South Eastern Sydney Local Health District

Australia, NSW Creator: NSW Government - Health - South Eastern Sydney Local Health District Available for: Desktop Last reviewed: 02/10/2018

Review: A free outpatient clinic to help consumers experiencing problems with over-the-counter or prescription pharmaceutical opioids. The clinic also helps people who are at risk of developing problems with their pharmaceutical opioid use (e.g. past history of problems), and people who need a specialist or second opinion in order for their doctor to continue prescribing opioid medications. Ostensibly for people living in the South Eastern Sydney Local Health District catchment area. Consumers from outside SESLHD may be eligible, but this needs to be discussed with the service before a formal referral is made. All patients require a referral from a General Practitioner or hospital before being able to access the services. Note: This is a review of the provider's website and the information on it, not a review of the quality of their services.
