Drug and Alcohol Program EOI

We’re seeking expressions of interest from NT-based providers to deliver activities that address the needs of people affected by substance misuse, and social and emotional wellbeing AOD activities to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across the NT.


NT PHN is seeking expressions of interest (EOIs) from locally based, suitably qualified and experienced providers of alcohol and other drugs (AOD) services to deliver new, innovative, evidence-based and outcome-based models of care.

In addition, NT PHN is also seeking AOD services that are informed by the National Social and Emotional Wellbeing (SEWB) Framework and are culturally appropriate for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who are seeking support for substance misuse.

NT PHN supports region specific, cross-sectoral and integrated approaches to SEWB informed drug and alcohol treatment services delivered through Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations.
