AADS Alcohol and other Drug (AOD) and Outreach Support Services are a multidisciplinary team who have a strong focus on cultural security in service delivery for the community. Together the teams provide programs to Aboriginal youth, families, men, women (and their children), schools and community groups and to clients within prisons.
Our teams respond to clients’ needs through holistic assessment, support planning, culturally appropriate counselling, medical withdrawal support, referral to residential rehabilitation (through partnerships), family support, advocacy, and prisons programs.
The program also delivers information, education and prevention:
- Alcohol, drug and substance awareness
- Community justice and diversion
- Aboriginal history and culture
- Parenting education
- Healthy communication and anger management
- Harm reduction
