About Us

Directions Health Services is one of the Canberra region's most experienced community organisations delivering treatment and support for people impacted by alcohol and other drug use, including family members and friends, and free health care for vulnerable Canberrans who have difficulty accessing health services. We apply a holistic approach to our services and can tailor programs to suit the needs of each client. Directions' services are judgement-free and open to any person who seeks our support, including those who continue to use substances. Our focus is on reducing substance-related harm and improving personal and public health.

How your donation will help

Funds raised for Directions Health will directly assist our GPs and nurses who operate PAT (our mobile health clinic) provide valuable health care services to Canberrans most in need, including Canberra's local homeless and transient communities.
