NSW specific Aboriginal crystalline methamphetamine and AOD resources

Leave a comment

The Alcohol and Drug Foundation (ADF) has been working with the ADAN Leadership group, AH&MRC and the NSW Ministry of Health to develop two Aboriginal specific AOD resources:

  1.  Four page fact sheet for families and elders on how to support someone who may be struggling with crystalline methamphetamine dependence. The fact sheet contains information on the drug and practical strategies on how to respond. You can find the PDF here: http://adf.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/facsheet-breaking-the-ice-for-indigenous.pdf 
  2. An adapted and updated resource from the VACCHO/ADF resource Healthy Spirit, Healthy Community which was published in Victoria in 2014. The booklet is a guide to alcohol and other drugs and also features information on crystalline methamphetamine. You can find the PDF of the booklet here: http://adf.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/NSWHEALTH_BOOKLET_13-Updated-03.02.17.pdf

 

Copies of both resources can be order free of charge from: http://yourroom.com.au/aboriginal-resources/
