Alcohol and Other Drugs support during the Christmas period

December 17, 2018

The Alcohol and Drug Clinical Advisory Service (ADCAS) is available for health professionals during the Christmas period.

The ADCAS is a specialist telephone support service for health professionals in Queensland, providing clinical advice regarding the management of patients with alcohol and other drug concerns. This free service is available from 8.00am-11.00pm, 7 days a week.

Initial enquiries are taken by alcohol and drug counsellors, who can provide alcohol and drug information, relevant local agency information, and referral options. Calls will be transferred to an on-call medical addiction specialist where the enquiry specifically relates to medical management.

This may include advice relating to:

  • Opioid pharmacotherapy and other prescribing enquiries
  • Management of withdrawal syndromes, intoxication and toxicity
  • Management of medical and psychiatric complications associated with alcohol and drug use
  • Drug interaction information

ADCAS can be accessed by calling 1800 290 928. 

The Alcohol and Drug Information Service (ADIS) will also continue to be open 24/7 throughout the Christmas period. 

ADIS can be accessed by calling 1800 177 833
