As workers supporting young people we are often being told to utilize technology more with the young people we support. The ADF have developed a service to review apps designed for drug and alcohol support.
Apps are everywhere and of course there is an ever increasing amount of apps designed to help people with information and support relating to alcohol and other drug issues. As time poor workers it can be hard to be accross every new development when you feel a young person may benefit from the use of digital tools and options.
The Australian Drug Information Network (ADIN) has begun collating and reviewing a library of apps to make it easier to assess whether or not different products would be useful. Not all the apps reviewed are targeted to young people but it is still a great resource.
