Medically Supervised Injecting Room Tours

Following a large number of Victorian lives lost to drug-related overdoses, the Victorian Government made the decision to trial a medically supervised injecting room (MSIR) at North Richmond Community Health.

The medically supervised injecting room is open for tour and information sessions for those who wish to learn more about the trial and how the facility operates. The room is closed to clients on Fridays from 8am to 9am and tours will take place during this time.

We have information about our different tour categories listed below. Please book the tour category that best fits the purpose of your visit.
