We’re making Footprints Across the Territory
This website is designed to support the orientation and workforce development of AOD workers across the Northern Territory who are working in regional and remote areas.
In 2006 funding through the Council of Australian Government was provided to enable the establishment of an Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) Workforce tasked with delivering services to remote communities.
The Remote AOD Workforce is a program that extends across 17 remote communities in the Northern Territory. The role of the Remote AOD Worker is provide direct client & family service delivery & community development activities that increase the capacity for service provision at the local level, and enable appropriate support for clients, carers, families and communities affected by AOD issues.
Within these sections you can find a variety of resources for working in alcohol & other drugs, mental health, community development, Indigenous health & wellbeing and more.
There are practice manuals, youtube videos, example of assessments & interventions, and guides for best practice in working with Aboriginal people in the remote AOD & mental health context.
