Developing an Alcohol and Drug Prevention and Treatment Strategy for Victoria: What do we need?’

Wednesday 21 September 2011, 9:00 am to 3:00 pm
William Angliss Institute Conference Centre, 555 La Trobe Street, Melbourne

As the Victorian Government works on a whole-of-government Alcohol and Drug Strategy, it is timely to consider what the key issues are in terms of alcohol and drug use in our community. Turning Point Alcohol and Drug Centre and the Australian Drug Foundation will present a full-day symposium to consider the opportunities and challenges for a whole-of-government approach.

Speakers will explore what existing evidence does or does not tell us in terms of opportunities for prevention, treatment responses, system and service configurations, community engagement and population-based approaches.

The symposium will seek ideas and proposals from attendees, as well as identify key issues from across all sectors of government.

Registrations are now open.
