Risky alcohol and other drug use can result in mental and physical health problems, social and family issues, problems with finances, violence, and contact with the criminal justice system. Problematic alcohol and drug use can also impact on the capacity to parent and on a child’s wellbeing.
The Commonwealth Government (through the Adelaide PHN) has designated PsychMed as one of SA’s key community based providers of drug and alcohol services. PsychMed’s tailored programs cater to the differing needs of individuals. Our services include assistance for people who have been struggling with alcohol or drug addiction for some time, to people who might just have some concerns about the way they are using alcohol or drugs right now.
Treatment options range from a free one-off session to assess how your alcohol or drug use might be affecting your life at the moment, to longer-term one-on-one therapy with an experienced psychologist. In addition, PsychMed offers two kinds of adjunct group therapy to further assist individuals to cut down or stop their use, including an intensive outpatient treatment program for high-risk methamphetamine users.
