Additional program description

The Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) Day Program is an evidence-based health treatment program for women to help them learn the skills they need to live a full and meaningful life free from alcohol and other drugs. It is an eight-week group program, running three days a week at the premises of Toora AOD Services in Civic ACT.

Clients are allocated their own case coordinator to develop their individual treatment plan and to make sure they receive a full wrap around service of supports.

The AOD Day Program provides a safe, positive and respectful environment for our clients to build relationships with one another in order to learn from each other and explore personal issues that led to their misuse of alcohol and other drugs. It allows women to challenge destructive behaviours, to trust and build on their strengths, develop new skills, and make positive choices for the future.

External agencies also attend our AOD Day Program to deliver information and education sessions on more topics.
