GLAD aims to assist public Drug and Alcohol Services to work collaboratively with you and your General Practice. A GLAD Drug and Alcohol Nurse can provide support to you and your patients through:
- Phone Advice
- Practice visits
- Assessment and treatment plans
- Collaborative shared-care
This project is a collaboration with public Alcohol and other Drug (AoD) services in all three Local Health Districts within CESPHN: South East Sydney Local Health District (SESLHD); Sydney Local Health District (SLHD); and St Vincent’s Health Network (SVHN).
All people 18 years and over, resident in CESPHN area with risky or hazardous substance use or substance use disorders are eligible to be seen in our services.
