Clinic 36 is a private clinic for heroin/opioid-dependent patients. We offer pharmacotherapy treatment and have been in operation since 1992. We merged with Regent House, our sister clinic, from October 2016.
Our clinic aspires to be a centre for excellence in pharmacotherapy treatment. The staff and management of Clinic 36 continue to support and augment existing government funded community services by providing assessment, treatment and ongoing review of opiate dependent clients for whom other treatment options have proven unsuccessful.
Clinic 36 recognises and promotes the right of the opiate dependent client to receive treatment from appropriately skilled, caring professional staff in a safe and comfortable environment. We are also committed to assisting people during their transition to alternative modes of pharmacotherapy.
Objectives of the Clinic
- To provide a treatment option based on the model of harm minimisation for those for whom abstinence is not an appropriate or desirable option.
- To enhance the health, safety and quality of life for those people seeking help and ongoing treatment.
- To provide a safe, comfortable environment for all clients in our care.
- To ensure those clients presenting to the clinic for care and treatment are aware of other treatment options available to them and, should other treatment modalities prove more appropriate, assist them to access the treatment of their choice.
- To engage in ongoing assessment and consultation with those in our care to review their progress and set mutually acceptable goals of treatment.
- To observe relevant regulatory and statutory guidelines and requirements and industry codes of practice.
- To establish clinically based modes of treatment that are a benchmark of better practice and industry standards in pharmacotherapy treatment.
- To foster a culture of continuous improvement at all levels of service.
- To seek client feedback in planning for future service delivery.
