The NPLG are also putting out an expression of interest [PDF] for new members to join this important group, that inform NADA’s work and guide the direction of good clinical practice. They are seeking early career members in particular—people relatively new to the sector but with good clinical experience and a passion for quality practice. Aboriginal and peer workers are also strongly encouraged to apply. Contact Tata de Jesus or any of the current NPLG members if you would like to discuss putting in an expression of interest.

We’d also like to take this opportunity to thank Liz Pearce of Kamira, a founding member of the NPLG, for her commitment and contribution to NADA and its members. Apart from being a founding member of the NPLG, Liz also shared her expertise with the NADA Women’s AOD Services Network. We wish her all the very best with her future plans.

Vision statement

Connecting clinical practice leaders in the NSW non government alcohol and other drug sector for the purpose of increasing the capacity of service providers to deliver person centred, evidence based practices to improve the wellbeing of clients and their networks of support.

The NPLG was established in July 2015 and now comprise 11 members representing a variety of specialist non government AOD treatment services. All members are clinical practitioners and considered leaders in the sector as evidenced by their professional backgrounds, accreditation status and clinical experience.

The group meet four times a year and meetings are open to other members/organisations as guest speakers only by invitation.

The overall aim of the NPLG is to inform the development of NADA policy and advocacy, and sector program development in relation to sector clinical and therapeutic practices. It will provide a mechanism to consult with experienced, committed and skilled practitioners to advise NADA and other key stakeholders.
