Youth AOD services network

Network update

The NADA Youth AOD Services Network met for their bi-annual network meeting on 9 April 2019. Representatives from 16 Network member organisations were in attendance—resulting in a fantastic collaborative event. The group discussed sector funding, upcoming projects and future Network activities, and were pleased to hear two presentations around upcoming University research focused on improving outcomes for young people in AOD treatment. The network is looking forward to an upcoming training session, and the development of the next iteration of the Youth AOD Services Network profile.

About the network

The Youth AOD Services Network is a collective of community based organisations that provide specialist services to young people seeking support for alcohol and other drugs use. The group works together to enhance service provision, develop partnerships and improve referrals. They participate in a range of networking, knowledge exchange and capacity building activities and actively work with NADA to advocate for improved AOD treatment access for young people in New South Wales.

Ongoing activities

The network meets four times a year—for two meetings and two training sessions.
