Hosted in partnership with NSW Health, this webinar series showcases the research undertaken by non government AOD treatment services and their research partners, as part of the AOD Early Intervention and Innovation Fund (EIIF) grant rounds.
Funded as part of the NSW Drug Package, the purpose of EIIF was to help build the evidence base for early intervention models and support people at risk of problematic AOD use, particularly young people.
The fund consisted of the NGO Evaluation Grants Scheme and the AOD Innovation Grants Scheme. Fourteen projects were funded through these schemes, and we look forward to their findings being presented as part of this series.
