Welcome to Community Door's information portal about alcohol and other drugs (AOD).
The problematic use of alcohol and drugs is a public health issue. It can damage people’s health and wellbeing, have a severe negative impact on families and reduce life opportunities for people.
Ensuring Queenslanders experiencing the problematic use of alcohol or other drugs can access help and support is important.
This Queensland Government website provides information on alcohol, drug and tobacco use, as well as where to seek treatment and help.
Insight is a Queensland Health initiative aimed at building a capable, confident and connected AOD workforce. They are a leading provider of alcohol and other drug training, education, information and advice, as well as other workforce development services for Queensland. Insight has developed a range of training tools that are free for Queensland based workers from the alcohol and drug, mental health, hospital, community health and non-government sectors.
Dovetail is another initiative of the Queensland Government supporting the youth alcohol and drug sector in Queensland. They provide clinical advice and professional support to workers, services and communities who engage with young people affected by alcohol and other drugs.
The Queensland Network of Alcohol and other Drug Agencies (QNADA) is the peak organisation representing the views of the non-government alcohol and drug sector in Queensland. QNADA supports member agencies to deliver high quality services to individuals, families and communities affected by problematic use of alcohol and other drugs. QNADA has developed a service finder for the sector.
Australian Government website healthdirect provides information on the health effects of drug and alcohol use.
In this section you will find current news, resources and other information relevant to those working in the AOD field.
