AOD yarning place

The Alcohol and other drugs (AOD) yarning place is a free online network that enables people across the country working in the area of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander substance use to share information, knowledge and experience - even when they live in different states, territories and regions, come from different sectors (such as health, education and justice), and work for different organisations.

By combining quality, up-to-date web-based information and resources from the Australian Indigenous Alcohol and Other Drugs Knowledge Centre (Knowledge Centre) with the AOD yarning place, we aim to create a great resource for people working or studying in the area of alcohol and other drugs and related Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health issues.
