Community Services

During COVID-19 Outbreak

Odyssey House NSW is an essential service by virtue of section 4 of the Essential Services Act 1988 (no.41), in which entitles the organisation to continue providing services to the community within a specified capacity during a time that a state of emergency is declared by the Australian Government.

Odyssey House’s free Community Services provide treatment, counselling, education, and aftercare support to those who have been affected by alcohol and other drugs. For Admissions please call 1800 397 739 option 2 or email referral@odysseyhouse.com.au

We are commencing a staged approach to providing on site services for our Community Services.  To facilitate physical distancing requirements and maintain safety for staff and clients, we will still provide some services on-line as we progress this.  If any clients feel the need to see your counsellor for a face to face rather than on- line or telephone session, please let them know and we can try to accommodate this accordingly.  There will be limited capacity to attend to clients who attend without appointments at this early stage. Please be patient as we progress this.  All clients, staff and visitors will need to complete a health screening form at every visit and have their temperature taken on arrival.  Please don’t attend the service if you are feeling unwell.

Due to the latest outbreak in Victoria, if you have recently returned from Victoria or have been in close contact with someone who has returned from Victoria, we respectfully request that you do not attend the service for 14 days. 

At Odyssey House NSW we understand the challenges that may be impacting the life and health of individuals, their friends, family and the wider community. Our experienced team offers free individual and group counselling, support, information and education to people who are concerned about their own or a loved one’s drug and/or alcohol use and the impact on their mental health.
