Substance Use Disorders Among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People in Custody: a Public Health Opportunity

 

Overview

This workshop/webinar discusses a study that investigated substance use disorders among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in custody. As a result of the study, additional clinical information has been discovered which has enhanced the understanding of treatment needs for substance use problems among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

A key finding of the study is that culturally capable alcohol and other drug treatment services in custody and in the community are critical, and should be co-located and coordinated with mental health services.

This workshop is scheduled for 11 October 2017, from 10-11am AEST, and available to attend in person, or via a webinar. To attend the webinar, please refer to this link, or to the links below. Some information on signing into the webinar is available on the webinar link page.
