Justice Health is leading a project to design and implement phase one of the new Forensic Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) Service Delivery Model. The project is a joint initiative between the Department of Justice and Regulation and the Department of Health and Human Services.

The primary aim of the new Forensic AOD Service Delivery Model is to enhance the forensic AOD service response to offenders on court orders with AOD assessment and treatment conditions and improve the efficacy of AOD treatment.

The following objectives have been set to achieve the primary aim of the model:

  • improve referral pathways and access for offenders to AOD services
  • improve the delivery of specialist forensic AOD treatment services to offenders
  • strengthen collaboration, coordination and accountability between the AOD and CCS sectors
  • enhance the capability of the AOD and CCS workforces to implement service enhancements
  • develop enhanced and flexible treatment models for forensic clients
  • embed governance over the delivery of services between CCS and AOD (centrally and locally)
  • develop effective reporting and monitoring tools and data systems.
