Alcohol and other drugs (AOD) are a health and social issue that impacts the whole community. The alcohol and other drug sector in Western Australia provides highly skilled services to meet the diverse needs of people in our community. The Western Australian Network of Alcohol and other Drug Agencies (WANADA) is committed to supporting services to improve the quality of life for individuals, families and communities affected by alcohol and other drugs.
WANADA is driven by the passion and hard work of our member agencies, which include community drug services, therapeutic communities and residential rehabilitation centres, sobering-up shelters, harm reduction services, and counselling services. WANADA is the independent voice on alcohol and other drug sector issues throughout WA.
