Australian Winter School conference



The alcohol and drug sector in Australia has and is experiencing pressures and changes which both have major implications for the development of responsive and sustainable services into the future.

The drivers of change include-the growing concept of recovery, patterns of substance use, a recognition of co-morbidity issues, both a scarcity and competition for funding and resources, pragmatism and misperceptions in the treatment and support of alcohol and other drugs (AOD) issues existing outside the sector, and the increasing importance of demonstrated outcomes.

A must attend event for workers and clinicians in the alcohol and drug sector, this year's conference Limited resources, unlimited ideas, will show case how new ideas, new practice, new models of treatment and new approaches can achieve not just results, but efficiencies.
