Australian Indigenous Alcohol and Other Drugs Knowledge Centre

The Knowledge Centre is an online resource that provides evidence-based and tailored materials to workers and communities involved in efforts to reduce the harmful use of alcohol and other drugs in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.  

The Knowledge Centre provides workers and communities in regional, rural and remote areas with access to online resources and support. The Knowledge Centre phone app ‘AODconnect’ is helpful for workers and people living in communities that have no internet access.  It allows people to find culturally appropriate services by state, territory and/or region through an interactive map of Australia by: 

  • alphabetical listing
  • postcode
  • service type.
