ATODA delivers alcohol, tobacco and other drug (ATOD) information and harm reduction training to non-government organisations and government agencies in the ACT. Training is delivered by the Senior Training Specialist, and covers ATOD use data, trends and harm specific to the ACT context and other issues on request.

Types of training

  • ATOD Information and Harm Reduction Training – trainings organised in collaboration with other ACT community sector peaks. The training covers up-to-date evidenced based ATOD data and trends, detailed information about major drugs of dependence including harm reduction information and, stigma and discrimination towards people who use drugs. The training also includes basic knowledge on ATOD issues in the community, ATOD screening, brief intervention, treatment and referral to ATOD service providers.
  • ATOD Training on request – training can be organised to match requests from the community sector, government or others. This is usually either:
    • Adaptation of normal training, requiring minimal development time, or
    • Development of a new training package, which will require more development time.

In all cases, the training will be oriented to the specific needs and requirements of the client and developed in consultation with them. ATODA may also organise other types of training according to demand and by mutual agreement with ATODA.

This training can be delivered as a one day face-to-face or in a series of online trainings via Zoom.
