Many people with alcohol or drug problems have a range of mental health problems at higher rates than the general community. These can include depression and anxiety.
The importance of identifying co-occurring issues has become better understood over the past decade and WRAD offers a range of services to support people with dual diagnosis, including the mental health nurse incentive program which provides support and assistance for clients. This service also works closely with the WRAD general medical practice.
WRAD provides assessment and referral and when indicated counselling and support.
