AODConnect: A new app to link Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders with AOD treatment services

February 2016

The Australian Indigenous Alcohol and Other Drugs Knowledge Centre has launched an Android version of their free mobile phone app, AODconnect. This app supports efforts to reduce harmful substance use among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. 

The new Android app is the same as the iOS version launched in 2015 and provides a national directory of alcohol and other drug (AOD) treatment services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The app can be used by the alcohol and other drug workforce, and the very wide range of health practitioners working in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health sector as it will enable them to locate specific Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander AOD services by state, territory and/or region through an interactive map of Australia or by alphabetical listing. 

AODconnect is available free for both Android and iOS devices (iPhones and iPads). Download at: or Google play and iTunes stores.
