Alcohol and drug withdrawal guidelines
Turning Point has just released the 3rd edition of the Alcohol and Other Drug withdrawal guidelines – a resource developed to support clinicians in the delivery of evidence-based withdrawal care.
Turning Point would like to acknowledge the Wurundjeri people who are the Traditional Custodians of this Land. We would also like to pay respect to the Elders both past and present of the Kulin Nation and extend that respect to other Indigenous Australians.
