The National Centre for Education and Training on Addiction (NCETA) at Flinders University has developed two resource kits to improve the ability of alcohol and other drug (AOD) workers to detect and respond to family and domestic violence (FDV).

The kits, Can I ask..? and Breaking the Silence, address the little understood association between AOD and FDV - both of major concern to police and health and welfare agencies - and provide information and strategies for working with people experiencing or using violence.

The issue is the subject of a Drug Action Week forum and workshop, being hosted today by NCETA at Flinders University Victoria Square.
