Special update - awards, treatment funding & annual report

ReGen celebrates award wins (& new investment in AOD sector)

In the past couple of weeks, we’ve received great recognition for our leadership in developing new approaches to AOD treatment.  Our work on establishing evidence based methamphetamine treatment models took out the ‘Improving health, safety and wellbeing’ category at the Victorian Public Healthcare Awards.  Rose McCrohan (who has managed Curran Place, our adult residential withdrawal service, since 2005) was also recognised with the APSAD Clinican Award for her trailblazing work as Victoria’s first AOD Nurse Practitioner and in improving the accessibility and effectiveness of our withdrawal services.

These are terrific outcomes for ReGen which, we thought, deserved their own update.  We’ll publish a more comprehensive update of recent developments across our services closer to Christmas.

We’re also very pleased to see a genuine commitment from the Federal Government to implementing (and funding) a balanced response to the recommendations included in the
National Ice Taskforce report.  While we’d like to see more detail on just how the new funding for treatment services will be implemented, we certainly welcome this much needed investment in treatment services.  See our media release in response to yesterday’s announcement.

Have you seen our first digital annual report?

In order to reduce the environmental impact of our publications and continue our work to increase the accessibility of information about our services across a range of formats, we’ve produced our first digital annual report: (FYI, we’ve also produced a summary version in hardcopy).

We’re conscious that this is our first attempt at this format, so would love to hear your feedback. Completing our six-question, anonymous survey will only take two minutes (or a bit longer if you want to add comments) but will help us make sure our future publications are user friendly and provide meaningful content.
