Social Outreach services

Social Outreach services

St John of God Health Care is committed to expanding its community-based Social Outreach services to address some of the underlying causes of poor health and well being. Our strategy concentrates on two key themes – capacity building and early intervention particularly in the early years of a person’s life and young people. 

Home-based withdrawalDrug Alcohol and Withdrawal Network (DAWN)

DAWN is a free and confidential service for people who want to reduce or cease substance use in their home environment.

The DAWN team is made up of nine Clinical Nurse Specialists who provide a home based treatment program for drug and alcohol withdrawal.  Referrals to the service can be from self, other counselling services, mental health services or from GP’s. 

Each client is individually assessed and the DAWN staff work closely together with and alongside GP’s, counsellors, allied and mental health personnel to ensure the correct treatment pathway is followed and achieved.
