Dual Diagnosis Care Services
Dual Diagnosis Care Services
People with a dual diagnosis face a number of complex challenges and require an integrated approach to care and support services We are specialists in high and complex needs and work closely with a number of clients to provide the integrated support they need.
As the management and care of dual diagnosis differs from person-to-person, our first and foremost focus is understanding the support requirements. Our complex care team work closely with each individual, family members, other health professionals as well as community agencies to develop and implement a person-centred support plan. The individual is always at the centre of planning, and we seek preferences and input throughout the entire process.
Our clients and families are also encouraged to be part of the recruitment process – each disability support team is recruited based on the specific care requirements and unique needs of the client.
In addition to clinical support, we offer other aspects of care including social interaction and involvement in interests and activities, which can help support emotional wellbeing and quality of life for clients and their families. Ultimately, our goal is to expand each person’s participation in all aspects of everyday life.

“I would like to thank you for the very high standard of support that continues to be and has been provided to my daughter over the past four years.
My daughter is 22 years old, her disabilities (including Global Learning Delay and severe Verbal Dyspraxia) affect her ability to communicate. Drake Medox's provision of support workers for community access on a weekly basis has helped to improve her quality of life and continued growth beyond the home environment.
Stability and flexibility of staff in relation to her care have fulfilled an important role and contributed positively to the whole family. We feel very lucky to know our loved one is in trusted care.”

“I have 24/7 support workers and they're all great. I'm there to get more independence and doing lots of cooking and cleaning. They're really good. All the staff are very friendly and helpful. The routine is good, I get to know who is coming in next.” - Client - Barney
“I have worked with Drake Medox Canberra as a disability support worker for roughly over 6 months now. Working at Drake is a relaxed environment and you are supported by the management 24/7 if you need help, have any questions or queries. The management/staff are approachable and very supportive. They have flexible working hours which works out great for me as a mum who has to juggle both work and family! They also try and match me with clients that they know I will get on well with. The weekly pay is a bonus. I would highly recommend working for Drake Medox!”
