Working in the AOD sector can be very rewarding. Nevertheless, as with any job, the work can also take a toll when demands exceed our resources and ability to cope. NADA has partnered with NCETA (National Centre for Education and Training on Addiction) and Matua Raḵi to examine the state of worker wellbeing in NSW and New Zealand.
