Update on Directions Health Services’ Programs
Directions Health Services continue to apply a holistic approach to our work and can tailor programs to suit the needs of each client. Some of our services continue to be provided as they always have, while others are still available while being delivered a little differently at this time, due to COVID-19.
In the ACT, our Arcadia House and Needle and Syringe programs remain open at this time. Primary health care services are still available at Althea Wellness Centre in Woden, but these services are being delivered via telehealth where appropriate. Please phone ahead on 02 6132 4800 and discuss whether a telehealth consult will meet your needs. We are continuing to provide outreach services in the ACT at this time, however these schedules may be adjusted as the pandemic situation continues to evolve.
Both our ACT Treatment and Support Service and NSW Pathways programs are now being delivered by telephone and video conferencing services.
Our Groups, including SMART Recovery, ADAPT and COMPASS are being delivered via Zoom. AA and NA also have online groups you can access:
Directions Health Services is continuing to implement all possible precautions within our services, including infection control cleaning, social distancing within our facilities, limiting site access to clients or essential suppliers only, and providing protective equipment to our staff. Please do not be alarmed if you see Directions staff wearing gloves, masks or other protective equipment. Protective equipment is being worn for yours and our safety when this is warranted.
If you have any concerns or questions, please don’t hesitate to call us on 02 6132 4800 or reach out to your local service.
