Weigelli/Orana Haven, Bourke Aboriginal Corporation Health Service and Far West Local Health District, have joined forces in a new project to address drug and alcohol needs in the Bourke community.

Located in Sturt Street Bourke, the newly appointed Weigelli/Orana Haven Hub building has been titled ‘The Centre of Excellence and Well-Being’.

The Centre, an outreach service that provides case management, support and counselling services, also offers a rehabilitation drop-in centre.

The Centre’s vision is to provide a range of services to assist drug and alcohol addicted community members who wish to get well, to participate and engage in programs that lead to brighter futures.
