Youth AOD services network

Network update

The Youth AOD Services Network has seen huge growth over the past six months. We are excited to welcome the following agencies to the network:

  • Drug ARM Australasia
  • The Buttery
  • Hunter Primary Care
  • Centacare New England North West
  • St Vincent Hospital AOD Service
  • Karralika.

These services provide supports including early intervention, education, counselling and referral support for young people. Each of these organisations brings a wealth of experience and will add to the strength, and knowledge base, of the network. If your service is an non government organisation in NSW, that has a primary or major focus on working with young people around AOD, please email victoria@nada.org.au for information about joining the network.

About the network

The Youth AOD Services Network is a collective of community based organisations that provide specialist services to young people seeking support for alcohol and other drugs use. The group works together to enhance service provision, develop partnerships and improve referrals. They participate in a range of networking, knowledge exchange and capacity building activities and actively work with NADA to advocate for improved AOD treatment access for young people in New South Wales.

Ongoing activities

The network meets four times a year—for two meetings and two training sessions.
