Description

Following a large number of Victorian lives lost to drug-related overdoses, the Victorian Government made the decision to trial a medically supervised injecting room (MSIR) at North Richmond Community Health.

The medically supervised injecting room is open for public tour and information sessions for those who wish to learn more about the trial and how the facility operates.


The room is closed to clients on Tuesdays between 12.30pm and 2.30pm. It's during this time the sessions will take place.
