Little is known about factors that effect Indigenous AOD workers’ wellbeing, but, anecdotal evidence indicates that Indigenous AOD workers are placed under considerable work pressure. The National Centre for Education and Training on Addiction (NCETA) has studied Indigenous AOD workers’ wellbeing, stress, and burnout and has identified some of the contributary factors. This document is part of a suite of resources that has been produced by NCETA to enhance Indigenous worker wellbeing and to reduce work-related stress. This resource was produced with funding from the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing under the National Drug Strategy.
