CFSS WA – Sobering Up Centre

The Centre provides a safe, care-oriented environment in which persons found intoxicated in public may sober up, therefore diverting them from police lock-ups and reducing the likelihood of them causing further harm to themselves or others in the community. Drug and Alcohol Office policy is that people presenting as intoxicated on any substance should be admitted to the centre, provided they comply with the normal criteria for admission: i.e. they are there on a voluntary basis; they have no medical condition which precluded their admission: their behavioural and physiological presentation is assessed by staff as appropriate for the sobering up centre environment.
