SWSPHN had the opportunity to showcase a new project which aims to address issues facing clients in Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) treatment, who have complex needs which impact their ability to maintain good health and remain in treatment, at a recent conference.

The Psychoeducation Module Project was presented at the Network of Alcohol and other Drugs Agencies (NADA) Conference on 11 and 12 May.

The project was a collaboration between SWSPHN, St Vincent de Paul, National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre (NDARC), and 360 Edge, and will deliver individual programs for clients of Rendu House’s Complex Support Needs Program.

The presentation, titled ‘A collaborative approach to plan, implement, and evaluate a psychoeducational program for clients with complex support needs’, was given alongside several other keynote speakers, presentations and panels providing valuable Alcohol and Other Drugs knowledge and insight.
