ReGen’s purpose is to promote health and reduce alcohol and other drug related harm.

Uniting ReGen is the leading alcohol and other drug (AOD) treatment and education agency of UnitingCare Victoria and Tasmania. ReGen is a not-for-profit agency, which has over 40 years experience delivering a comprehensive range of AOD services to the community.

  • ReGen is an equal opportunity employer.

  • ReGen has zero tolerance to child abuse and this applies to all groups particularly those that are at higher risk who might not feel comfortable reporting. This includes a commitment to cultural safety of culturally and/or linguistically diverse children (including Indigenous children) and children with a disability.

  • ReGen is committed to reducing the harms associated with Tobacco and staff should adhere to site specific guidelines that includes tobacco free at some locations.

Our approach

ReGen's services are consistent with the harm minimisation framework that has underpinned national and state drug strategies for more than 25 years. In keeping with these strategies we are committed to minimising the health, social and economic harms to individuals, families and communities resulting from alcohol and other drug use.

Harm minimisation is not about moral judgements regarding AOD use. It is about working with people in a respectful way, whether their goal is ceasing or reducing their use, or minimising the harms associated with substance use.

To achieve these commitments ReGen provides evidence-based programs that integrate established research findings with 42 years experience in service delivery.

The comprehensive nature of ReGen’s services for individuals and families enables us to provide early interventions where people are at risk of, or experiencing early stage AOD problems. We also provide more intensive services for adults or young people who require greater support or medical care.

ReGen provides a continuum of services that could involve a person anonymously checking their alcohol use by doing a quiz on-line; attending an alcohol or other drug education program; attending a support group for family and friends of people experiencing AOD problems; undertaking a drug withdrawal program in their own home supported by experienced clinicians; attending residential and non-residential treatment programs; or maintaining positive change through on-going support group attendance. Targeted services are available online.

As well as providing a range of alcohol and other drug brief intervention/ diversion education programs, ReGen also provides workforce development training, consultancy and mentoring for AOD workers and other allied health professionals, including through our nationally Registered Training Organisation.
