Transitional alcohol and other drugs project

 

Overview

The Transitional alcohol and other drugs project is a program offered by the Community Restorative Centre (CRC) of New South Wales. The program aims to assist people with criminal justice histories who may have difficulty accessing alcohol and other drug (AOD) services. The core focus of the program is to assist those with criminal justice histories and complex needs including:

Outreach counselling is used to address the barriers to AOD services that people with complex needs regularly experience. Transitional AOD workers meet with clients approximately one month before they are due to be released to identify post release AOD issues. Workers support clients for up to three months with the aim of linking clients with mainstream AOD services where required, establishing ongoing support and thus reducing the likelihood of clients re-offending and returning to prison.
