About Sobering Up Centres

Sobering Up Centres provide a safe environment in which people found intoxicated in public may sober up. A person being cared for in a Sobering Up Centre can expect:

  • Access to bathroom facilities, a shower, bed, clean clothes, and a simple nutritious meal
  • Non-discriminatory and non-judgemental care
  • Referral to other agencies and services if required.

People may refer themselves to a centre or be brought in by the police, a local patrol, health/welfare agencies, or other means.  Attendance at a centre is voluntary.

Sobering up centres are listed in the My Services online directory. They are currently available in Kalgoorlie, Port Hedland, Carnarvon, Derby, Broome, Wyndham, Perth, Kununurra and Roebourne.
