Welcome to Odyssey House Victoria
Odyssey House recognises that alcohol and other drug problems can have a significant impact on children and other family members. We also aim to support and make our services relevant to the widest range of people, welcoming all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, those from culturally diverse backgrounds, and those from LGBTQI communities to our services.
