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. Telephone interviews were conducted with study participants who have AOD use problems living in the South West, regardless of whether they have accessed AOD services of not.
Recruitment for the study has now finished. The research team is currently analysing the data, with research findings due to be released later in 2020.
