As part of the implementation of the new Forensic Alcohol and Other Drugs Treatment Service Delivery Model, the Department of Health and Human Services has funded Caraniche to deliver a suite of new training initiatives for the AOD treatment sector. These training initiatives are closely aligned with Victoria’s Alcohol and Other Drugs Workforce Strategy 2018-2022. The training modules are intended to be completed in sequence, and earlier trainings are prerequisites for later trainings. Caraniche has a team of psychologists, specialist forensic AOD clinicians and trainers who are contracted to provide forensic AOD treatment within both the Victorian public prison and community forensic systems.
