for the new Alcohol and Drug Rehabilitation facility for the North West Region SA
The Aboriginal Drug and Alcohol Council (SA) Inc., Aboriginal Family Support Services and the Aboriginal Health Council of South Australia are pleased to announce an exciting new endeavour that will benefit Port Augusta and communities in the North West region of SA in reducing the level of alcohol and other drug misuse and associated harm.
The first Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility for the region is soon to be established at Ellis Close in Port Augusta, providing short term accommodation for a 12 week program that includes counselling, programs and activities.
North West Regional Residential Rehabilitation facility needs a new name, so we are inviting all members of the community to suggest one.
We invite you to enter a name for the service and you could win a prize valued at $1000!
The name should consider:
- The purpose of the service
- The service is provided for all communities in NW region of SA
- The service is for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people wanting to address their alcohol and drug use.
Rehab Naming Competition
Many Years ago when Aunty Issie was a welfare officer she was able to get a poster made about the "children" this is on the top left corner in the new poster
We wanted a poster this year After much discussion with we came up with
"AUNTY ISSIE SAYS PROTECT OUR CHILDREN"
"AND THEY WILL PROTECT OUR CULTURE"
