This introductory one day seminar is designed for health professionals including those in private practice on understanding and responding to alcohol and other drug (AOD) issues in clinical work.

Research suggests that problematic substance use often goes unreported or is minimised by clients and this can have an adverse impact on treatment. Do you routinely screen for substance use in your work with clients and how do you determine if their use is problematic? What specialist services are available in the community and how do you refer clients?
