Reverend Charles Harris Diversionary Centre
The Reverend Charles Harris Diversionary Centre is a sobering-up facility open 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year, designed to support people at risk of harming themselves or others due to public intoxication.
The centre is an alternative to the Townsville Police Watch House. Clients are transported to and from the centre by private shuttle bus.
The centre provides them with a safe and familiar place to sober up, a clean bed, a healthy meal, hygiene and laundry facilities and basic first aid if necessary. Assistance is provided to those who are too intoxicated to meet their basic needs unaided
