We Do Recover

AODA is a common abbreviation for Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse in the treatment of addictive disorders. AODA stands for Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse, which refers to the misuse or dependency on alcohol or other substances.

In the addiction recovery community, AODA is often used as an umbrella term to describe a range of substance abuse disorders. It encompasses both alcoholism and drug addiction, recognising that individuals may struggle with various forms of substance misuse. By using this term, professionals and peers can address the diverse needs of individuals seeking treatment.

AODA has a history rooted in understanding the impact of substance abuse on individuals and communities. Over the years, treatment approaches have evolved in response to increased knowledge of addiction and its effects. Recognising that substance abuse is a complex issue, professionals have developed various evidence-based therapies and interventions tailored to address specific substances and individual needs.

It is key to note that AODA is not just limited to illicit drugs or alcohol. It also includes the misuse of prescription medications, such as opioids or benzodiazepines. This recognizes the growing concern surrounding the abuse of legal substances and the need for appropriate treatment options.
