Increasing demand for heroin withdrawal across the Victorian AOD sector has highlighted the need for our workforce to refresh their clinical skills in assessing risk and planning best practice treatment responses.

To help this process, we are providing an information session for Care and Recovery Co-ordination and Assessment workers who refer people to our Curran Place adult residential withdrawal service.

Presented by Rose McCrohan (Curran Place Manager / Nurse Practioner), the aim of the session is to provide workers with a clear understanding of ReGens’:

  1. Opiate Withdrawal Policy, management of opiate withdrawal / induction onto Suboxone or methadone and discuss case examples;
  2. Tobacco Free environment;
  3. Withdrawal waiting list and co-ordinated pathways to rehabilitation services;
  4. Exit planning; &
  5. Mother Baby specific queries

Participation in the session will help us ensure that referrals to our Adult and Mother Baby Withdrawal Service are successful and accepted for admission in a timely manner.

Date: Wednesday 20th December, 10 to 1pm

Location: 26 Jessie St Coburg 

RSVP by Friday 15th December 2017 to  or (03) 9490 2400.
