The Victorian Government is investing $52.1 million in the regional alcohol and drug residential rehabilitation services – Stage 2 and 3 projects. The project aims to help more Victorians in the Barwon, Hume and Gippsland regions access specialist support.
“Sensum are proud to be involved in the delivery of this project that is critically important to the local communities and part of the State Governments wide-ranging reforms”. – Paul Thompson, Health Sector Lead
The funding will build three new regional alcohol and drug residential rehabilitation facilities in Corio, Traralgon and Wangaratta. Once complete, these facilities will provide alcohol and drug residential rehabilitation services to an additional 900 Victorians every year.
Residential rehabilitation facilities provide treatment in a structured and therapeutic environment. These new facilities will help more Victorians receive the treatment and support they need – close to home and other community services.
Artist’s impressions have been released, providing a first look at the exterior of these facilities designed for modular construction and the internal fit outs for each regional location.

New residential rehabilitation beds will help meet increased demand for services and relieve pressure on other health services.
These new facilities will provide treatment and support in regional areas, which will reduce the need for local residents to have to travel to Bendigo or metropolitan Melbourne to for support.
