The Drug & Alcohol Health Services Inc. (DAHS) is a non government organisation with offices located in the Upper Hunter at Muswellbrook and on the Mid North Coast at Coffs Harbour, New South Wales.
DAHS is a unique organisation helping those with drug and alcohol problems, as well as servicing the local courts’ Magistrates Early Referral Into Treatment (MERIT) Program in both the Hunter Valley region and the Mid North Coast (Coffs Harbour includes alcohol as well as other drugs).
The aim of DAHS is to provide accurate and current information on the effects of alcohol and other drugs to the Upper Hunter and Mid North Coast Communities.
A “no wrong door” philosophy is promoted for individuals and families where alcohol and other drugs and mental health dual diagnosis are an issue.
Our Muswellbrook office provides counselling on a one to one or group basis to persons affected by their misuse of alcohol and other drugs.
The Coffs Harbour office delivers the MERIT Program only, however part of the treatment process may include referral and counselling services for persons affected by alcohol land and other drugs and dual diagnosis.
The objective of the Drug & Alcohol Health Services Inc. is to provide community education on alcohol and other drugs and dual diagnosis aimed at encouraging people to be responsible and promote a harm reduction philosophy.
