In this comprehensive resource, you will find research outlining the effectiveness of residential treatment. This resource covers a variety of different types of residential treatment for the range of people who seek support, for example, young people, women, Aboriginal, etc.
It includes frontline worker experiences from organisations that provide specialist AOD services in residential settings; best practice approaches that you and your organisation can implement; and a range of resources for further reading.
