The Women's Alcohol and Other Drug Services Network

The Women's Alcohol and Other Drug Services Network was established in January 2013. The Network comprises of representatives of organisations that provide specialist services to substance using women, including children. The Network is intended to facilitate collaboration, knowledge and information sharing on an ongoing basis with the view to strengthen women's alcohol and drug non government organisations and further common strategic interests.

The Network identified the need for:

• An analysis of existing service provision to meet the needs of substance using women, and their children in NSW.
• The development of guidelines to assist these services to provide best practice interventions and ensuring consistency of care for substance using women, women who are pregnant and women and their children.
