Alcohol and Other Drug Consumer & Community Coalition

The Alcohol and Other Drug Consumer & Community Coalition (AODCCC) was incorporated in June 2018 in response to the need and support for an AOD specific consumer advocacy body. We have recently received funding from the Mental Health Commission in order to progress our establishment and have now released our Mission, Vision and Values.

History

In 2015, the Health Consumers’ Council was funded to co-ordinate a project to build on the recommendations from the November 2014 Forum, Improving Consumer Involvement in the Alcohol and Other Drug Sector.   An Alcohol and Other Drug Advisory Group (AODAG) comprising government agencies, not for profit organisations and consumers was set up to oversee progress.

The project specifically addressed the following recommendations:

  1. to develop a common set of principles for engagement
  2. outline best practice engagement strategies for the sector

In 2017 the WA Primary Health Alliance funded HCC to support the ongoing work of the Alcohol and Other Drug Advisory Group (AODAG) to oversee a new project entitled “Improving Consumer Involvement in the Alcohol and Other Drug Sector”.

It was agreed that the term ‘alcohol and other drug consumers’ was inclusive of current users, service users, potential service users, family members and supporters.
