This service is for CMDHB residents aged 18 to 65 who are vulnerable to the extent that they require intensive support and treatment. Individuals must be currently engaged with a publically funded specialist AOD or Dual Diagnosis Service.
This service is not appropriate for individuals whose main issue is:
- mental ill health (without any AOD)
- primarily a medical or physical illness
- severe intoxication requiring detox
- acute psychosis
- lack of current or future accomodation
