The role of an Aboriginal women's group in meeting the high needs of clients attending outpatient alcohol and other drug treatment

 

Overview

This research project considers the role of a support group for female Aboriginal clients with alcohol and other drug use (AOD) disorders attending outpatient AOD treatment.

Data is presented on the complex needs of clients presenting to the group. Female clients and staff also describe perceived usefulness of the group and suggestions to improve its operation.
