What is Addiction Medicine?
Addiction Medicine is the comprehensive care of people with substance use and addiction disorders, including drug and alcohol addiction, and pharmaceutical dependency.
The Australasian Chapter of Addiction Medicine (AChAM) plays an important role in shaping public policy in the areas of health protection, prevention and health promotion for improved public and population health outcomes.
What is the College doing?
The AChAM Committee leads the Chapter’s policy and advocacy work; its current priorities are to:
- develop a position statement with the AFPHM to influence Government drug policy.
- advocate for better drug and alcohol treatment and
- advocate for stronger alcohol regulation.
