How to Access the Service
To ensure that this service is the best match for consumers, it is important that we carefully assess individual’s treatment needs. People can refer themselves directly to the service through DAWN. Other services, such as Community Alcohol and Drug Services, mental health, general practitioners, child protection and corrective services can also make referrals by contacting DAWN. For consumers who are already engaged with the Residential Pathways Team at Cyrenian House, workers there will assist with the referral for assessment with DAWN.
