The Network of Alcohol and other Drugs Agencies (NADA) is the peak organisation for non government alcohol and other drugs services in NSW.
The following resources have been developed, or commissioned, by NADA over the past 12 months and have the potential for application outside the NSW non government AOD sector. All resources are free and in the public domain.
NADA policy toolkit
This online toolkit supports the formal quality improvement program of NSW non government AOD organisations. Download the files to easily create or review operational policy documents.
NADA has developed a series of worker wellbeing resources designed for the NSW non government AOD sector. The resources encourage workers to invest as much time and care looking after their health as they do others.
Consumer participation audit tool
This tool supports organisations to gauge where they are currently situated in relation to consumer participation in service delivery, policy and program development, access and equity, and capacity building.
AOD LGBTIQ inclusive guidelines for treatment providers
Developed by ACON through a partnership with NADA and CESPHN, this guide aims to increase the understanding of AOD workers about the needs of LGBTIQ people and communities, their needs and how to provide an inclusive service response.
AODTS NMDS—an interactive guide to the data set
This resource aims to develop a nationally consistent approach to AOD service data collection by increasing awareness of the data elements in the AODTS NMDS, increasing understanding of common errors in NMDS data collection and increasing service capacity to accurately record and report AODTS NMDS data.
Complex needs capable
NADA has developed this course to build the capacity of AOD workers and organisations to better support clients with complex needs.
