Third Edition of the Comorbidity Guidelines now available

In 2020, the Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care funded researchers from the Matilda Centre for Research in Mental Health and Substance Use at the University of Sydney to develop the third edition of the Guidelines on the management of co-occurring alcohol and other drug and mental health conditions in alcohol and other drug treatment settings.

In parallel, the existing Guidelines website and online training program has been updated to facilitate their translation into practice. The training has been developed for the continuing development of practitioners, and as well as those in training, who work in the alcohol and other drug sector.

The Guidelines, website and online training program can all be freely accessed. To begin using the training program, please register through the website.
