The Medication Support and Recovery Service (MSRS) is a free and confidential service for anyone who is having problems with their use of prescription or over-the-counter medications.
WHAT SERVICES DO WE HAVE?
The MSRS has specialist counsellors, nurses, nurse practitioners and peer support workers (people who have a personal experience of medication problems) who can help you to cut down, quit or make changes in your medication use. We can also connect you with doctors, mental health services, physiotherapists and other health services to support your overall health and well-being.
WHERE ARE WE LOCATED?
The MSRS is based in community health services across the East and North-East suburbs of Melbourne. You can come to any one of our services, regardless of where you live. Click here to find out more about our locations.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Our program is fully funded by the Eastern Melbourne Primary Health Network, so all services are provided at no cost to you.
WHO CAN COME TO THE MSRS?
Anyone who has problems with their use of prescription or over-the-counter medications can come to our service for help. The MSRS can support people who have been referred to, and are awaiting, other services such as Pain Clinics.
You don’t need a Medicare card, private health insurance or a GP referral to come to our service.
We welcome people who might also have problems with mental health (like anxiety or depression). People who are using alcohol or other drugs as well as medications are also welcome at our service.
