The Queensland Indigenous alcohol diversion program (QIADP) is a voluntary treatment program for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples who have appeared in either the magistrates court for alcohol related offences, or the children's court for child protection matters where alcohol use plays a part. The program began in July 2007, and involves various Queensland (Qld) government departments and agencies, including Qld Health and Qld Corrective Services.
