‘Experiences of addiction, treatment and recovery’
DANA is pleased to be involved with a new research project, based at Curtin University’s National Drug Research Institute. It aims to explore people’s experiences of living with a drug habit, dependence or addiction, how they cope and how they make decisions about drug use, drug treatment and everyday life. Importantly, we’re trying to get a range of experiences, including those that go beyond the commonly told stories of crisis and recovery. We’re now seeking people aged 18 and over, living in Sydney, to participate.
Participation involves a one-hour confidential interview in a location of the participant’s choice in Sydney. Participants will receive $50 reimbursement for their time. The information we gather will be used to develop an informative website for people experiencing issues with alcohol and other drugs, their friends and family, and health professionals and policy makers.
The study has been approved by the Curtin University Human Research Ethics Committee.
