Submission: Standing committee on social policy and legal affairs inquiry into family, domestic and sexual violence

NADA acknowledges the gendered nature of family, domestic and sexual violence (FDSV) and while we would posit that there is a clear intersection between FDSV and AOD use, we caution against implying that AOD use, in and of itself, causes FDSV.

In July 2020, NADA provided a submission to the Standing Committee on Social Policy and Legal Affairs Inquiry into Family, Domestic and Sexual Violence, addressing two specific aspects of the Terms of Reference that relate to in the involvement of the AOD sector:
c) The level and impact of coordination, accountability for, and access to services and policy responses across the Commonwealth, state and territory governments, local governments, non government and community organisations, and business.
j) The views and experiences of frontline services, advocacy groups and others throughout this unprecedented time.
