Abstract

This article reviews historical and contemporary issues surrounding the development of Indigenous substance use interventions. Specific attention is given to tertiary level intervention, including Indigenous notions of 'rehabilitation' and interpretations of the disease model of alcoholism. Conflicts with the mainstream management of substance use interventions are discussed, as are the complexities of current services, and recommendations for change. Issues surrounding secondary and primary interventions are also considered.
