Intake, assessment and referral

Anyone with a substance use issue or their family members and friends are eligible to access services for an assessment. Individuals can self refer to the Addiction Services ACU by phone or in person, or can be referred from other ACUs, services or agencies.

On referral an intake form will be completed to gather personal demographics and relevant clinical information. This information will be discussed at a multidisciplinary team meeting on the next business day and will be allocated to an Addiction Services ACU clinician to follow up. Urgency is assessed at the time of referral. A referral to the service is not necessary – people can make an appointment either by phone or in person at a clinic.
