Increasing the number of rehabilitation beds in the North West is an important part of our Plan to create One Health System for everyone with higher quality services and better results for patients.

I am very pleased that the Salvation Army has now opened 12 new drug and alcohol rehabilitation beds in Ulverstone, funded by the Hodgman Liberal Government.

This is part of a $4.8 million investment we announced in last year’s state budget to tackle the scourge of ice and other drugs.

Ulverstone is centrally located across the whole of the North and North West, and the facility is close to other existing alcohol and drug service providers including the State Alcohol and Drug Service in Ulverstone, whilst also being in close proximity across the broader North West area.

These new rehab beds represent a significant boost in residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation capacity on the North West.

The Salvation Army will work with people with severe alcohol and other drug dependencies and their families/carers to deliver 24 hour 7 day a week residential rehabilitation treatment and support.

There has been a longstanding service gap in this area on the North West and we are pleased to have identified a solution to address it.
