Eastern Health 

At Eastern Health we are excited to announce that we’re rolling out a new service delivery model; an integrated unit that will incorporate support for Alcohol and other drugs (AOD) and Mental Health (MH) consumers. It is the first of its kind in Victoria.

1 East at Box Hill Hospital is currently an eight bed AOD inpatient unit. It is being expanded to include a lower acuity mental health inpatient unit with 9 mental health beds. The unit will provide a model of care whereby AOD consumers would, after a stay on 1 East, move to Wellington House (also part of Eastern Health) or other services for a period of ongoing support in the form of stabilisation and maintenance. The mental health beds will provide assessment and intervention on a short term basis for people experiencing severe mental illness until people are well enough for effective, community-based treatment and support.
