About the ACT ATOD Services Directory: Version 12

The ACT ATOD Services Directory communicates the diverse range of services and programs available in the ACT alcohol, tobacco and other drug (ATOD) sector. It aims to support workers to make referrals, increase cross and intra-sectoral knowledge, and foster collaborations.

The Directory was developed in response to the identified need of the ATOD sector, and has been produced as a partnership between ATODA and the ACT ATOD Workers Group.  For further information about the Workers Group visit: www.atoda.org.au/about/about-atod-sector/workers-group

Full profiles are provided for agencies funded or delivered by the ACT Government Health Directorate to provide ATOD treatment or support services (including those represented on the ACT ATOD Workers Group). Briefer profiles are also included on additional programs that provide ATOD specific support throughout the Directory.
