About the Event


Specialised ATODS treatment services aim to provide people with a range of accessible client-focused and evidence based ATODS interventions to reduce harms to individuals, families and the community.

This includes the provision of comprehensive, specialised and effective multidisciplinary ATODS assessment and treatment services.

The full spectrum of ATODS services encompass three main components:

  1. Prevention and early intervention
  2. Intervention / Treatment
  3. Maintenance / Aftercare

ATODS services exist within the spectrum of integrated mental health, alcohol and other drug and other health services. 

These services are provided within a harm minimisation approach that emphasises individual strengths, building resilience and enhancing opportunities for social inclusion.

The primary role of ATODS service is to focus on the intervention / treatment phase, as this is where harm most significantly occurs. In terms of prevention and early intervention and maintenance / aftercare the HHS ATODS service will generally be collaborating with partners.
