Providing the evidence base to reduce harmful AOD use in
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities
The Ngnowar Aerwah Aboriginal Corporation in Wyndham, Western Australia, provides a 13 week residential rehabilitation program to community members wanting to stop drinking alcohol.
Program participants take part in individual and group counselling, and are provided with information about the problems that dependence on alcohol can cause such as family break-up, low self-esteem and other health issues.
The rehabilitation centre encourages clients to participate in town activities to show an alternative to drinking alcohol.
