Why would I attend?

If you provide any form of service to people in your community, this conference will have something of relevance to you. We know that people who use alcohol tobacco and other drugs are a diverse group, of all ages, occupations, cultural backgrounds and more. Some of these people will attend your service, whether it be non-government, government, private or commercial.

You may be responding to someone who needs information, support, referral or treatment in relation to their substance use.

Your role might be focused on prevention, early or brief intervention or harm reduction or you may be providing complex clinical treatment or longer term counselling, or perhaps you work in a policy setting. You may provide health, welfare, justice, education, family support, housing or homelessness services; the intersection of your role with the alcohol tobacco and other drugs sector will be enhanced through attending this conference.

The conference will provide streams linking policy, practice and research to strengthen our response to substance use at all levels. It will provide time to network with colleagues, to discuss the latest developments in ATOD, to learn and enhance your understanding of contemporary evidence-base approaches. A chance to challenge your practice, to rethink ways of doing what you do and to meet other professionals in a collegial and stimulating environment.

To be effective in our response to alcohol tobacco and other drug use, a multi-dimensional, collaborative approach is vital and this will be reflected in the conference program.
