Referrals for Opioid Substitution Treatment can be received from your GP and other health professionals via fax or post to the location nearest you. We do accept referrals from any source, including self-referral, but we prefer that your GP is informed so that both services are involved with your treatment.
In rural Otago we need a referral to come from your GP or another health or social support agency.
For Invercargill Alcohol and Drug Services, please make referrals via Single Point of Entry:
Phone: (03) 214 5786 or Freephone 0800 44 33 66
Fax: (03) 214 5696
PO Box 828
Opioid Substitution Treatment programmes are available at all Southern DHB Alcohol and Drug Services locations.
