Ms Erin Madden, Research Officer, University of Sydney & National Comorbidity Guidelines was an attendee at this year’s 2019 Australian & New Zealand Addiction Conference.
Check out Erin’s feedback from this year’s event
ANZ Addiction was such a wonderful experience! I found that the delegates were really motivated to achieve better prevention and treatment initiatives in alcohol and other drug settings. Treating the person (not the illness), holistic care, addressing comorbid mental health conditions and harm reduction were all common themes.
This is what our National Comorbidity Guidelines and accompanying training program are all about, and most of the attendees I spoke to already had a copy of the Guidelines on their shelves. I have such high hopes from speaking to this great group of people that outcomes for clients will improve. Thank you all for the motivation!
