Directions Health Services is a not-for profit organisation that provides a range of free, integrated services and programs for individuals, family members and friends impacted by alcohol, tobacco and other drug use, mental health and other complex health issues in the ACT and regional NSW.

Directions have been providing specialist AOD treatment, support and other health services to individuals and families for over 45 years, taking a collaborative approach to services to continue to meet the changing needs of the communities we serve.

Directions works within a harm reduction approach, with a strong reputation for providing client-centred, respectful, non-judgmental care – working with each individual regardless of where they are in the change process.

Directions’ evidence-based programs include community-based early intervention, treatment, support and harm reduction services throughout the ACT as well as the Murrumbidgee, Goulburn, Eurobodalla, Monaro and Bega Valley regions in NSW. Our complementary services and programs are designed to reduce or limit harms and improve personal and community health.
