Detox Centre opens to the community

GEDC CEO Kris Starcevich joined staff and community members for the official opening of the expanded Goldfields Rehabilitation Service Alcohol and Drug Treatment facility on 18 November.

Royalties for Regions provided $2.7 million of the total $3.4 million expansion project, which included construction of a new 18-bed rehabilitation facility located next to the four-bed detox centre.

The detox facility commenced operation in May 2020, but the opening was delayed due to COVID-19 event restrictions.

The launch event provided an opportunity to tour the facility and learn how the expansion ensures that people can access the support and services they require, within their own community.

These new facilities will help manage high demand for rehabilitation and low-medical detox in the region, with Goldfields Rehabilitation Services Inc. managing a continuous waitlist for its services.
