This section provides an overview of some of the general principles of alcohol and other drug work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples such as why people become dependent on alcohol or other drugs, assessment, counselling and harm reduction approaches. Tips for workers for this topic are based on the Handbook for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander alcohol and drug work [1]. Health promotion and practice resources and publications relevant to general principles can also be found on this page.
