The Women’s Clinical Care Network comprises non-government services that provide alcohol and other drug (AOD) treatment and support to women, including services for pregnant women and women with children.
Aims of the Network
– Contribute to NADA’s broader aim to reduce the potential for AOD related harm to individuals, families and the community
– Improve the capacity of non-government AOD services to identify and respond to women clients who require AOD, mental health and other intersecting supports
– Collaborate on projects focused on supporting women with their AOD use, as agreed upon by the Network, where this work adds value to the group
– Promote shared solutions to common issues,to improve pathways and connections for AOD NGO services working with women
Why you should join
I joined the network because I think that we are strong in solidarity. Proportionately, women carry and hold the majority of the expertise in our area and I believe it deserves upholding. I also believe that work in our area is… considered lower status (than it should be!) and traditionally this correlates to ‘women’s work’; care work, work that is sometimes messy but takes heart and humanity. And I want to be a part of recognising and building it up
All NADA members that provide AOD services to women are welcome to attend the Network’s forums and training. Join the mailing list to receive details of upcoming events, announcements and sector information relating to women accessing AOD treatment services. For more information or to join the network, please email Hannah Gillard.
