Whilst a referral is not required in most cases, some of the programs available do require a General Practitioner (GP) referral to access any Medicare rebate. These programs include:
Better Outcomes in Mental Health (BOMH)
Suicide Prevention Program
Child Mental Health
Enhanced Primary Care Plans
Mental health Nurse Incentive Program (MHNIP).
A Supported home Detoxification service is available, however there are certain requirements for this service and a GP must be involved in the detoxification plan. If you do not have a regular GP, Adam will assist in finding one for you. For additional information on supported home detoxification please enquire either by email or phone.
There are more programs being designed at present that we hope will be available in the very near future.
