Alcohol and other drug treatment for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Canberra: National Indigenous Drug and Alcohol Committee

This paper was developed by the National Indigenous Drug and Alcohol Committee (NIDAC) in response to the misperception that effective alcohol and other drug (AOD) treatment is not available for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The paper aims to reduce these misperceptions by outlining:
  • who can benefit from receiving treatment
  • what treatment is known to work
  • key principles that should guide the application of treatment
  • what constitutes effective treatment for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
The paper focuses upon interventions that are evidence-based and directly related to addressing
AOD use. It does not cover interventions that have a prevention focus.
