Coronavirus Response

We are open for new and existing clients

 

As of 23 March 2020, Drug ARM has moved our face-to-face alcohol and other drug and mental health services to telephone, online or virtual modules. 

Drug ARM has always placed the health and safety of our clients, supporters and stakeholders at the centre of our care model. In these challenging times, we are doing all that we can to continue providing flexible and accessible high-quality services. 

Most of our programs and services will continue, however our Annerley Library, Education and Training, Op Shops and Street Outreach Services have been closed temporarily in line with Government advice.
