Drug and alcohol abuse, and overdose deaths, devastate our Aboriginal families and Aboriginal communities.
First Nations Australians are more than three times as likely to die from an accidental overdose than non-Indigenous people.
That’s why we know that GEGAC’s Alcohol and Other Drugs Workers are right at the heart of the powerful work GEGAC does in helping this community survive and thrive.
The help they provide for local families struggling with addiction and abuse of alcohol and drugs makes an enormous difference to those families and the broader community.
“We are all about no judgement,” says AOD Worker Kirsty Collings. “It’s just about being a part of the solution.”
Right now GEGAC is looking for an AOD Community Nurse to provide professional and quality nursing assessments to clients undergoing treatment for drug and alcohol issues or awaiting treatment.
The role requires the provision of holistic assessment, support and referral for the client, carer and family.
The impact you will make on this community is immeasurable – you’ll be part of a community that greatly appreciates you and your work.
