The Sunrise Centre Addiction Services

Addiction is a persuasive social reality throughout Australian society. Some people become addicted to substances after they use them to relieve pain from a medical or psychological issue (self-medication). Substance abuse can also occur as a result of expeimentation or choice.

We provide many services here in the Northern Territory to help people gain independence away from substance abuse.
