CHMR is a partnership between Cyrenian House and Milliya Rumurra Aboriginal Corporation.

The service provides individuals and their families with improved access to alcohol and other drug services on an outreach basis, servicing the communities north of Broome along the Dampier Peninsula and also south to Bidyadanga.
