Three new regional residential rehabilitation facilities open

Construction is now complete on three new residential rehabilitation facilities, providing more support for Victorians recovering from alcohol and drug addiction across the state.

The $52.1 million investment has delivered:

  • a 30-bed adult residential rehabilitation service in Corio operated by Windana
  • a 30-bed adult residential rehabilitation service in Wangaratta operated by Gateway Health and Odyssey House Victoria
  • a 20-bed youth-specific residential rehabilitation service in Traralgon operated by Uniting Vic Tas.

The project has also delivered administration and consulting facilities, dining and activity areas, and landscaped gardens at all three sites.

The three facilities will provide care and support to an additional 900 Victorians every year.

About alcohol and other drug residential rehabilitation

Residential rehabilitation facilities provide 24-hour care and support for people in a structured and therapeutic environment. They aim to create lasting change – with research-driven treatment approaches supporting those in recovery to reintegrate into the community.

The new facilities will help more Victorians access and get the support they need – closer to home and their support networks. They will also help reduce the impact of drugs and alcohol on local communities, improving community safety and wellbeing.
