Our Alcohol and Other Drugs program has been introduced to support people in our community with substance abuse and addiction.
Following an extensive consultation process, we have introduced a range of new programs to our region as part of our Department of Health funding (Alcohol and Other Drugs). We are also coordinating a major consultation project to learn how we can better help GPs and pharmacists with Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) treatment and patient support.
