This program provides therapeutic counselling, care coordination and support to address the dual needs of those aged 15 years or over who have BOTH a mental health concern and an alcohol and other drug (AOD) problem. Northern Connect is a free program and offers an integrated approach, allowing both mental health and AOD issues to be tackled together. Delivered by Sonder (along with Uniting Communities and Life Without Barriers), this program is one of a suite of AOD treatment services commissioned by Adelaide PHN within the Adelaide region.
Community services, health professionals and individuals may self-refer, by telephoning 8209 0700.
A GP Mental Health Treatment Plan is required to complete the referral process.
