A 24-hour drop-in centre for people in crisis because of methamphetamine addiction is part of a $79 million plan promised by Western Australia's Labor government to help combat the supply and use of the drug.
The pre-election pledge also includes the development of a 20-bed rehabilitation centre in metropolitan Perth to be operational by 2024.
Premier Mark McGowan said his government had already delivered strong results in the fight against meth.
"We have given police the resources they need to cut the supply of drugs into the state while investing in reducing demand for drugs with treatment initiatives," he said.
At a cost of $39.7 million, the drop-in centre will operate around the clock offering support to people experiencing a drug-related crisis and to their families.
It is expected to be open in July 2022 offering short-term beds to allow people to "crash and recover" for up to 72 hours while offering intervention and harm-reduction information and referrals to other services.
The state government said it would be Australia's first 24-hour service offering beds and outreach for people experiencing acute drug-related issues.
