Abstracts are welcome on a wide range of drug and alcohol topics including: early intervention, prevention and health promotion; working with Indigenous communities; young people, alcohol and drugs; pharmaceuticals; NSPs, PIEDs; measuring impacts and outcomes; partnerships; domestic and family violence and child safety; family and child centred practice; social marketing; and FASD.

Unleash Potential is the exciting theme of the 2015 Australian Winter School conference. The focus is on broadening experiences, challenging responses, adopting new perspectives and turning ideas into action.
