Description

These operational guidelines were developed to underpin the management by front-line workers employed in the Department of Human Services Victoria (DHS) funded services of people using inhalants.

They cover assessment, clinical management and follow up of people using inhalants. They concentrate on management strategies and interventions for regular and chronic inhalant users, with less attention to experimental inhalant use.

DHS has a clear policy that does not permit the passive observation/supervision of clients using inhalants. The two key audiences for these guidelines are out-of-home care services and alcohol and drug treatment services.
