New search feature on AODconnect app

Date posted: 2 February 2017

The Australian Indigenous Alcohol and other Drugs Knowledge Centre has improved the way users can find services on the mobile phone app, AODconnect. The app provides a comprehensive, national directory of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander alcohol and other drug treatment services.

Users now have the option of finding a service by postcode, as well as finding services through an interactive map or alphabetical listing. The search facility by postcode, provides an additional feature which allows the user to locate information on services for a local area, which is more specific than the listing available for broad regional areas. This offers the user more choice to identify services appropriate to their needs.

The search by postcode facility enhancement has been developed to support alcohol and other drug workers and community members to more easily connect with information on alcohol and drug treatment services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

All search functions on AODconnect are simple and intuitive and there is also a helpful tutorial included when the app is downloaded.

AODconnect is available free for both Android and iOS devices (iPhones and iPads). It can be downloaded from Google Play or ITunes stores.

More information about AODconnect can also be found on the Knowledge Centre.
