It has been reported the CLP Government in the Northern Territory will be closing the facility used for voluntary and mandatory alcohol rehabilitation in Nhulunbuy.

The residential facility in Nhulunbuy was purpose built in 2007 to provide treatment for those with alcohol and other drugs problems. Community groups and traditional owners worked with the former Government to deliver and build the 24 bed facility as it would allow for abuse programs to be completed on country.

Member for Nhulunbuy, Lynne Walker says, “the closure of this hard fought facility would be a disappointing outcome for the community of Nhulunbuy and surrounding regions.”
