Event description

Description

Turning Point has been contracted by the Department of Health and Human Services to provide state wide training in Service Integration to the alcohol and drug sector.

People experiencing alcohol and drug problems may also have a range of other needs. These can include physical and mental health needs, as well as housing, employment and other social care needs, including relationships and parenting. It is essential that AOD workers have the skills and knowledge to work with a range of agencies to support clients in their recovery.

This one day workshop will suit all workers in the AOD sector and aims to enhance good practice in relation to the development of joined-up service planning for vulnerable clients with multiple service needs. Strategies will focus on the delivery of whole person, integrated and person-centred care.

This workshop provides an opportunity for information sharing, skill development and reflective practice.

The workshops will be held in three (3) metropolitan and four (4) regional areas allowing participants to consider issues in a local context.
