The New Zealand addictions workforce: Characteristics and wellbeing

In June 2017, the National Centre for Education and Training on Addiction (NCETA) was commissioned by Network of Alcohol and Other Drugs Agencies (NADA) and Matua Raki (now Te Pou) to conduct a comprehensive survey of the alcohol and other drugs (AOD)/addictions workforces in New South Wales (NSW) and New Zealand (NZ). This report presents the results from the NZ survey (findings from the NSW component are presented separately).



Te Pou has a wide range of evidence-based resources and tools to help the mental health, addiction and disability workforces.
