Various Treatments.


 

CAHMA workers can assist you with advice or information regarding the various treatments whicvh are available for drug users. CAHMA offers this service because, as peer workers, we have first hand knowledge and understanding of these services and of why they may or may not be appropriate for you. The treatment services which are most commonly accessed in the ACT include pharmacotherapy treatments (like methadone or buprenorphine), short term detox services, and medium to long term rehabilitation services such as theraputic communities. If you are thinking about trying some form of treatment service you might find it useful to talk with a CHAMA staff member to discuss the pro's and con's of each treament type and to talk about which treatment type might suit you best.

 

CAHMA also runs a Treatment Support Service, which assists clients who are having difficulties accessing or utilising pharmacotherapy and other treatments

In addition to the treatment services outlined above, there are also a number of other treatment services available in Australia which CAHMA staff can advise you about. These services include such things as rapid-detox and naltrexone implants.
