In December 2015, the Commonwealth Government released the Response to the National Ice Taskforce’s Final Report. This report established a role for PHNs in the planning and commissioning of treatment services to reduce the harms associated with AOD. Western Victoria PHN was allocated over one million dollars per annum over three years.

Western Victoria Primary Health Network (PHN) has developed this Alcohol and Other Drugs Treatment Services Context Paper, which provides an overview of the context and process for the support and commissioning of AOD services.
