VAADA’s purpose is to ensure that the issues for people experiencing the harms associated with alcohol and other drug use and the organisations that support them are well represented in policy and program development and public discussion.
VAADA’s membership comprises agencies working in the AOD field, as well as those individuals who are involved in, or have a specific interest in, prevention, treatment, rehabilitation or research that minimises the harms caused by alcohol and other drugs (AOD).
VAADA has produced sets of prompt cards – covering alcohol and other drugs, mental health, trauma informed care, CALD, Family Violence and LGBTI – designed to assist health and community service workers who may come across substance use in their work. You can order a free set of prompt cards here
