Midland Intervention Centre
Recommendation 29 of the Methamphetamine Action Plan (MAP) Taskforce Report highlighted the need for “an appropriate alternative crisis intervention response that would provide a short-term place for methamphetamine users when they are in crisis that will keep them, their families and the community safe, including in the regions.”
As part of the 2019-20 Budget, and Full Government Response to the Report, $4.8 million over four years was allocated for the establishment of the Midland Intervention Centre. A site in Midland located at 41 Eveline St has been identified as the preferred location for the service to be implemented. This site will be newly refurbished and ready for fit out by the successful respondent.
The Mental Health Commission is currently preparing to advertise a tender for the service provider. The Midland Intervention Centre is planned to be operational in the first quarter of 2021.
