Youth & Family Drug and Alcohol Clinical Support Network

The NSW Ministry of Health funded the WNSWLHD to increase access to drug and alcohol treatment for young people aged between 10 and 18 years across Western NSW. Based on consultations with a range of stakeholders, WNSWLHD developed the Youth Drug and Alcohol Clinical Support Network (YDACSN) in partnership with Bila Muuji.

YDACSN consists of a number of service providers working together to deliver a range of interventions for young people with drug and alcohol dependence and their families.

Joe Gordon, Youth & Family Drug and Alcohol Worker is supported by the YDACSN specialist team and has training and capacity building opportunities within the partnership.

The YDACSN program provides:

  • Assistance with screening, assessment, care planning, treatment, and care coordination for young people with complex needs
  • Links to local services and referral pathways to support coordination of care between service providers
  • Clinical advice and support for service providers (government and non-government) working with young people aged 10-17 years with ‘moderate to severe’ substance use
  • Training, education, tools, and resources to enhance the capacity of services to deliver a range of evidence-based drug and alcohol supports and interventions for young people
