When it comes to addressing addiction in Australia, issues of underfunding, under resourcing and continued stigma prevents us from progressing further. To move forward, we must consider a system reboot.
This week, we welcome Dr Nicole Lee, Adjunct Professor at the National Drug Research Institute and Director at 360Edge, a consultancy specialising in the alcohol and other drugs sector. With 30 years’ experience in policy and practice implementation, Nicole’s vast sector knowledge has made her an invaluable asset as a member of the Australian National Council on Alcohol and other Drugs (ANACAD) - Australia’s key expert advisory council to the Australian Government on drugs. Nicole has a unique combination of experience and skills in clinical practice and management, research, teaching, and policy development.
Tune in as Nicole delves into the many facets of addiction, and how changes to the system can completely transform the way we approach prevention, treatment, and recovery.
