Extra rehabilitation beds for Victorians struggling with the impacts of drugs and alcohol will be made available by the end of the year.
The Victorian Government announced an additional $53 million in funding this week to deliver 100 new residential rehabilitation beds. This along with other initiatives will double the number of beds currently available to the community.
The beds will help up to 400 Victorians each year to create lasting change in their lives, and the lives their family and friends.
The beds are being provided as part of a wider package to address drug problems in Victoria, including new service models for complex clients and work to tackle poor quality or unsafe service provision.
