The symposium brought together a variety of speakers to present evidence based research in treatment, policy, prevention, harm reduction and law enforcement strategies. The event provided numerous opportunities for professional networking, collaboration, discussion and debate around "working out what works" in responding to alcohol and other drug-related harm across a diversity of settings.
