Resources on alcohol and other drugs to support health and welfare professionals, service providers, and community members working with First Nations clients.

A brand-new suite of information, designed and written for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, has just been launched by the Alcohol and Drug Foundation.

Developed in consultation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander service providers and community organisations, the resources provide factual information about alcohol and drugs, in an easy to digest format using wording and scenarios that are culturally relevant.

The resources are tailored to support health and welfare professionals, service providers, and community members working with First Nations clients.

There are 14 downloadable resources, with topics ranging from ‘Why do people use grog and drugs?’ and ’Looking out for Mob’ to ’Different types of alcohol and drug treatment’. Plus, there are seven simple fact sheets all about common drugs and their effects, including grog and gunja (cannabis).

All the new resources can be freely downloaded from the ADF website: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander resources – Alcohol and Drug Foundation (adf.org.au)
