Youth alcohol and drug practice guide: practice strategies and interventions

by Crane P, Francis C, Buckley J

Year 2013
City Brisbane
Institution Dovetail


This guide outlines various approaches to engaging with young people experiencing problematic alcohol and other drug use. It draws upon the knowledge of practitioners in the field and outlines a range of service models. Content includes:

  • engagement with clients
  • risk assessment
  • intervention strategies
  • responding to specific situations such as overdose or inhalant use
  • co-occurring mental health and alcohol and other drug use disorders.

Culturally specific interventions such as the Mt Theo project and an adaptation of the 'stages of change model' for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are described.

The guide was developed by Dovetail in partnership with the School of Public Health and Social Work at the Queensland University of Technology.
