ACT ATOD Services Directory

ACT ATOD Services Directory (Visit www.directory.atoda.org.au)

The ACT ATOD Services Directory communicates the diverse range of services and programs available in the ACT alcohol, tobacco and other drug (ATOD) sector. It aims to support workers to make referrals. increase crass and intra-sectoral knowledge, and foster collaborations. The Directory was developed in response to the identified need of the ATOD sector, and has been produced as a partnership between ATODA and the ACT ATOD Workers Group.

The newest ACT ATOD Services Directory, Version 11, is now offered in the format of a multi platforms website that contains:

  • a quick reference guide
  • details on where to access information about ATOD
  • tips on how to make an effective referral
  • a map of ACT ATOD program and service locations
