Alcohol & drugs education & training

The Women's provides pregnancy care and counselling for pregnant women with drug and alcohol issues. 

Our Women's Alcohol and Drug Service (WADS) offers state wide professional education and training and secondary consultation. To complement the annual training calendar, tailored training programs can be arranged to meet your organisations specific needs. 

All sessions are conducted by the Women's Alcohol and Drug Service team; experienced practising health professionals with qualifications in midwifery, social work and psychology. They also hold postgraduate qualifications in drug and alcohol work and professional training. 

To allow us to design an appropriate session, please complete the training request form indicating which topics will best meet your needs. The training co-ordinator will contact you when this information is received.

Although our training courses are free, bookings are essential. As places are limited, if you can't attend please call to cancel your place and allow others to attend.

Refreshments are not provided during these training programs. There is a cafeteria available onsite, please ask your trainer to direct you on the day.
