South West Alcohol and Other Drugs Study

A research study conducted in collaboration with The Rural Clinical School of WA and the Lishman Health Foundation is currently underway. The research aims to explore users’ experiences of accessing alcohol and other drug (AOD) services in the South West, and the impact of COVID-19 on service availability and accessibility. The study aims to recruit and conduct a telephone interview with approximately 30 people who have AOD use problems living in the South West, regardless of whether they have accessed AOD services or not.
