Adelaide PHN AOD Framework 1

Adelaide PHN’s 2024 – 2026 AOD Framework

Adelaide PHN AOD Framework 1

Adelaide PHN has unveiled its Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) Treatment and Quality Framework for 2024-2026. This framework is designed to steer AOD treatment services in the region, emphasising health equity, partnerships, and data-driven solutions. It outlines strategies for reducing AOD-related harm, enhancing service accessibility, and ensuring culturally competent care.

The framework aims to reduce alcohol and other drug (AOD)-related harm in the community over the long term. The medium-term goals for this framework include improving access to AOD services, enhancing the cultural competence of the health workforce, and achieving cohesive service integration. In the short term, the framework focuses on implementing effective screening and referral pathways, enhancing the attainment of treatment goals, fostering positive treatment experiences, and improving health outcomes, especially for diverse and vulnerable communities.

This framework will assist Adelaide PHN in our commissioning work and how we effectively support the region, for a healthier Adelaide.
