Murdi Paaki Drug and Alcohol Network

 

Overview

The Murdi Paaki Aboriginal Drug and Alcohol Network is a partnership between The Lyndon Community, Maari Ma Health Aboriginal Corporation, Bourke Aboriginal Health Service, Coonamble Aboriginal Health Service and Walgett Aboriginal Medical Service in New South Wales (NSW). 

The Network's hub in Orange focuses on improving access to specialist drug and alcohol knowledge and support to existing primary health care services. They provide evidence-informed and culturally appropriate health promotion, prevention, early intervention, treatment and care to Aboriginal people through workforce development, capacity building and community development strategies.

The Murdi Paaki region covers almost one third of NSW along the Murray Darling Basin in the north and west. More than 8,700 Aboriginal people live in the region, in towns such as Broken Hill, Bourke and Walgett and in some of the more remote and isolated Aboriginal communities in NSW such as Brewarrina. Clinical services are provided by the Aboriginal medical services at the Network sites.
