The funding, which will be available over three years and provided in the form of grants of up to $2.5 million, is earmarked for areas of need throughout the state.
 
The areas include the Fleurieu region, Peterborough and the Mid-North, Port Augusta, Ceduna, Murray Bridge, Playford, Port Adelaide and Onkaparinga.
 
‘Alcohol and drug misuse affects not just the individuals involved, but the people and communities around them,’ Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt said. ‘Drug and alcohol treatment services are crucial to enable people with substance problems to get their lives back on track.
 
‘This funding will target areas of South Australia that need it most and ensure people struggling with alcohol and drug misuse can receive the right treatment in the right place at the right time.’
 
Grant applications are open until 20 December.
