AODconnect is a national directory of alcohol and other drug treatment services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
The app has been created for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander alcohol and other drug (AOD) workforce or any health professional working in the AOD sector looking for a culturally appropriate service.
The app allows you to find a service by state, territory and/or region through an interactive map of Australia or by alphabetical listing. Services can also be filtered by the type of treatment they provide: counselling and referral, harm reduction and support groups, outreach, mobile patrols and sobering up shelters, residential rehab, withdrawal management, and young people.
AODconnect also includes some services that are not Aboriginal specific but are available to all people. Many of these organisations provide Aboriginal Liaison Staff that are able to provide assistance to access services.
The programs and services are also available from the Australian Indigenous Alcohol and Other Drugs Knowledge Centre website (http://www.aodknowledgecentre.net.au/).
AODconnect is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and managed by the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet as part of the Australian Indigenous Alcohol and Other Drugs Knowledge Centre project.
