Medication Support and Recovery Service (MSRS)

The COVID-19 pandemic and mandatory use of SafeScript present unique challenges for consumers. In particular, people who are dependent on or have problems with their use of prescription or over-the-counter medications may need further support.

The Medication Support and Recovery Service (MSRS) is a community-based treatment service, designed to help support health practitioners and clients in the East and North-East region of Melbourne.

Our services include;

  • Prescribing pharmacotherapy
  • Nursing withdrawal support
  • Counselling
  • Peer support.

We are continuing to deliver services to clients face to face, through telehealth platforms and over the phone.

We welcome all new referrals. Anyone can call our intake number to discuss the program. The MSRS is funded by the Eastern Melbourne Primary Health Network- treatment is provided at no cost. Referrals can also be made via our website or by contacting our intake team on (03) 9810 3080 or 1800 931 101
