New Alcohol and Other Drug Service for LGBTIQ and HIV + community members in Adelaide

Thorne Harbour Health, October 2021

“The Cottage” is a new Alcohol and Other Drug Service for LGBTIQ and HIV + community members in Adelaide, from Thorne Harbour Health

At Thorne Harbour Health we understand that LGBTIQ community members can have particular needs when it comes to making positive changes in relation to drinking and using drugs.

We know that our communities often experience higher levels of harmful substance use and that the reasons why we drink and use are closely related to the social, political, and relational contexts in which we live.
 
However we also know that AOD service use is lower in our communities and that LGBTIQ+ folk may be reluctant to access support or unaware of where to find appropriate and safe support.
 
The Cottage’s priority is to provide an affirming, welcoming and accessible service, designed to specifically meet the needs of LGBTIQ and HIV + community members aged 16 years and above living in Adelaide.
 

Services offered:

  • Counselling
  • Brief intervention
  • Care & Recovery

Our service is free of charge.
We are open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm. We can offer after hours appointments by arrangement.
We are located at The Cottage, 51 Bower St, Woodville.
We also offer outreach services and telehealth appointments.
