Alcohol and Other Drugs


We support clients who want to work to resolve their drug and /or alcohol use.  We can put people in touch with detox and rehabilitation providers, we can also connect clients with healthcare and counselling providers. In addition to this Hanover’s Southbank site runs a program for clients.

Alcohol and Other Drugs program  (AOD)

The AOD Team at Southbank is available to any person residing, or who has resided at, the Southbank Crisis Accommodation Facility who wishes to address Drug and Alcohol Issues.

  • Non Residential Withdrawal
  • AOD counselling (standard and Complex)
  • AOD Care and Recovery Coordination

Some of the services provided by the Alcohol and Other Drugs team at Southbank include:
