About The Conference

The 5th National Indigenous Drug and Alcohol Conference (NIDAC18) will be held from 6 – 9 November 2018 in Adelaide, South Australia.

This Conference will consist of a three-day event to be held at the Adelaide Convention Centre from 7 – 9 November as well as a pre-conference workshop, ‘Dual Diagnosis Brief Intervention’ at the Stamford Plaza Adelaide on 6 November.

The theme of this Conference, ‘Responding to Complexity’, acknowledges the range of issues including chronic health problems; injuries from assaults; homelessness; criminal offences and incarceration; and social disruptions including family and cultural breakdown that accompany harmful alcohol and other drug use. Mental health issues are a common comorbidity, which along with the continually challenging nature of alcohol and drugs and their use, means that people presenting to alcohol and drug services typically have complex, multiple needs.

Accordingly, for services to effectively respond to this complexity and restore the physical, social and emotional wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people a variety of interventions and supports are required.

The Conference event seeks to explore this complexity and the interventions and supports required to address harmful alcohol and drug use.
