Medically Supervised Injecting Centre
The Uniting Medically Supervised Injecting Centre (MSIC) Kings Cross is a compassionate and practical health service that seeks to connect with people who inject drugs and welcome them in a non-judgemental, person-centred way. Recognising that drug dependence is chronic, with relapse being an in-built part of this, our focus is on harm reduction. This means we concentrate on reducing the negative consequences of drug use on a person’s health and well-being. The Uniting MSIC does not support or promote drug use; it acknowledges that it is part of the community and seeks to provide assistance that is practical and sound.
Located in Kings Cross in Sydney, Australia, our team supports people in a holistic way, with dignity and respect. Our work is grounded in medical evidence, with independent evaluations showing that the service is saving lives and helping to make the community a healthier, safer environment for all.
The Uniting MSIC is operated by Uniting, the services and advocacy arm of the Uniting Church NSW & ACT, and is supported by the New South Wales (NSW) Police, NSW Department of Health and the local community. The service is funded by the Confiscated Proceeds of Crime Account, which is managed by the New South Wales Treasury.
