ACT ATOD Services Directory

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 cross 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.

Version 14 was launched in September 2016 and it includes:

  • 34 detailed program profiles
  • A full Directory and quick reference guides by service name and service types
  • An interactive map of service locations
  • Additional program profiles from the allied sectors

The website is an effective mechanism for the sector to access information and for ATODA to communicate about ATOD services and programs available in the ACT.
