The Youth AOD Services Network has seen huge growth over the past six months. We are excited to welcome the following agencies to the network:
Drug ARM Australasia
Hunter Primary Care
Centacare New England North West
St Vincent Hospital AOD Service
These services provide supports including early intervention, education, counselling and referral support for young people. Each of these organisations brings a wealth of experience and will add to the strength, and knowledge base, of the network. If your service is an non government organisation in NSW, that has a primary or major focus on working with young people around AOD, please email email@example.com for information about joining the network. The network meets four times a year— for two meetings and two training sessions.
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.
The network meets four times a year. Past training activities include:
Resilience building in young people
Black Dog Institute
Psychopharmacology and young people
Young people and methamphetamine
Dr Suzie Hudson
