The Handbook for Aboriginal Alcohol and Drug Work is a practical tool to use in your everyday work, and to be combined with your skills and local knowledge. It offers a detailed look at alcohol and drug work from clinical, through to prevention, early intervention and harm reduction. This handbook is also likely to help people working to improve policy and those advocating for change. The idea for it came from workers all over Australia. They said that they needed an easy to use handbook that can help them respond to the range of alcohol and drug issues they face every day. They wanted a book that takes into account the complex challenges facing workers when helping clients, their families and, sometimes, whole communities.
