Koori Access Program (KAP)



The Koori Access Program (KAP) aims to improve access to and engagement with treatment services for Aboriginal adults and young people at the the Melbourne Adult and Youth Community Residential Withdrawal (CRW) centres in Victoria (Vic).

The program employs a male and female worker to support and assist direct referrals and/or those clients that have been referred to the program from rural based Koori Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) Workers.

KAP workers can support clients through the CRW assessment, intake and treatment process and with any post withdrawal treatment needs that have been identified as part of that clients individual treatment plan.

The program undertakes quarterly visits to rural based Aboriginal organisations in Vic to provide information updates and training to Koori AOD Workers and their management.

The KAP is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health under the National illicit drug strategy.
