Alcohol and Other Drugs

Respectful, confidential support.

What we provide:

  • a Needle and Syringe Program
  • a drug outreach program
  • nursing services.

Our services are:

  • free
  • confidential
  • respectful
  • available in languages other than English.


The Outreach team engages with people about their drug use. Our team gives people information about safe drug use, safe sex and the safe disposal of used injecting equipment. We are also available to help with community education, advocacy, support and referrals to other agencies.

Needle and Syringe Program

The Needle and Syringe Program is a free and confidential needle-exchange service for people who inject drugs. We exist to help prevent the spread of blood-borne viruses like HIV and Hepatitis B and C.

With a separate entrance to the building, people can walk in and get equipment in a purpose-built, confidential space. Our staff are also on hand to give information and connect people with health, housing and other support services when needed.

You can also dispose used equipment safely at the needle-exchange.

North Richmond Community Health does not deliver injecting equipment. Innerspace’s Mobile NSP Outreach service delivers equipment in a number of Melbourne suburbs in the evenings.

Medically Supervised Injecting Room

In 2018, North Richmond Community Health will open a medically supervised injecting room.


Telephone and on-site interpreters can be arranged in any language at no cost to you.

 North Richmond Community Health’s Alcohol and Other Drugs service is supported by the Victorian Government.
