The Port Augusta Substance Misuse Service is a strictly confidential 7 days a week 24 hour service designed to meet the community's needs. It aims to minimise the adverse harm to health, and the social and economic consequences resulting from excessive alcohol and other drug use to individuals and the general community, whilst striving for best practice in a culturally sensitive manner.
