Sobering up shelter

The Sobering Up Shelter service is available to people living rough and at risk of harm in the greater Darwin, Palmerston and Katherine areas.

Based on a harm-minimisation model, it provides short-term, non-custodial, safe shelter for intoxicated people over the age of 16.

The shelter provides overnight accommodation to people under the influence of alcohol or other drugs who have been delivered to the shelter by the Northern Territory Police or the community Night Patrol service.

Self-admissions are accepted, however shelter staff will refer people to other services that may be able to assist them.
