Standard on culturally secure practice (alcohol and other drug sector).

Perth: Western Australian Network of Alcohol and other Drug Agencies

The Standard on culturally secure practice (alcohol and other drug sector) has been developed for alcohol and other drug (AOD) agencies to gain a formal certification of a culturally secure practice.

The Standard contains seven performance expectations and criteria. Agencies are awarded a 'good practice' certification if they meet 80% of the essential criteria for each performance expectation.

The Standard is supported by a separate document, the Interpretive guide to the standard on culturally secure practice. The Interpretive guide helps agencies to achieve certification by providing examples of how to interpret and apply the standards.

The Western Australian Network of Alcohol and other Drug Agencies (WANADA) developed the document in consultation with the WA AOD sector, and with Indigenous AOD services Australia-wide. The Drug and Alcohol Office of WA and the Australian Government's Office for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health funded its development.

The Department of Corrective Services' Offender drug and alcohol strategy 2010 - 2014 has been developed to address the specific needs of offenders in custody and under community supervision by providing a platform to address the harm caused from licit and illicit drug use.

DrugInfo Clearinghouse

The DrugInfo Clearinghouse has developed this factsheet which outlines some of the key themes and findings from the consultation report developed during the first stage of the Indigenous dual diagnosis project.

This project has three aims: to increase coordination and collaboration between alcohol and other drug and mental health services; to develop and facilitate dual diagnosis training and resources that are culturally appropriate and relevant; and to build capacity in the Aboriginal workforce.

The findings described in the factsheet provide valuable insights for people working with Aboriginal clients with a dual diagnosis and their families and communities.
