Koori access program (KAP)

 

Overview

The Koori access program (KAP) aims is to improve the access and treatment completion rates of Aboriginal adults and young people to the Melbourne metropolitan based network of Adult and Youth Community Residential Withdrawal (CRW) centres.

The program employs a male and female worker to support and assist direct referrals and/or those clients that have been referred to the program from rural based Koori alcohol and other drug (AOD) workers.

KAP workers can support clients through the CRW assessment, intake and treatment process and with any post withdrawal treatment needs that have been identified as part of that clients individual treatment plan.

The program undertakes quarterly visits to rural based Aboriginal organisations in Victoria to provide information updates and training to Koori AOD workers and their management.
