Australian AOD Peaks Network

NADA is a member of the Australian AOD Peaks Network, which comprises all state and territory AOD peak bodies. The network provides a conduit for immediate access to NGO AOD services in all Australian jurisdictions. We work together for collective advocacy, sharing resources and information to minimise duplication in policy and program development. Download the capabilities statement [PDF].

The Peaks Capacity Building Network is made up of representatives from the above, to specifically focus on the capacity building activities of the peaks network. The Peaks Capacity Building Network commissioned an independent evaluation of our role in building our members capacity. Download the outcomes evaluation [PDF].

Aboriginal Drug and Alcohol Residential Rehabilitation Network (ADARRN)

This organisation was previously known as the NSW Aboriginal Residential Rehabilitation Healing Drug and Alcohol Network (NARHDAN). 
The Aboriginal Drug and Alcohol Residential Rehabilitation Network (ADARRN) was established by a network of chief executive officers and senior managers of Aboriginal residential rehabilitation services in New South Wales. Incorporated in July 2019, ADARRN has developed ADARRN members meet quarterly to: 

  • support each other and advocate for issues
  • to share and develop culturally sound best practice principals, knowledge and experience
  • to be the key consultative group at both state and national levels in regard to Aboriginal residential rehabilitation services. 

NADA has a current MOU with ADARRN, and is supportive of their goals through advocacy and regular representation at ADARRN meetings.
