Community Offenders Advice and Treatment Service (COATS)

Located in Queensland

COATS works with individuals who have an alcohol and other drug (AOD) concern, or a court-ordered mandate for AOD assessment and treatment, to divert them away from further contact with the criminal justice system, and support safety and wellbeing for that individual and the wider community. Students will work with our Forensic AOD Assessors to facilitate referrals with holistic assessment, case formulation and treatment planning advice to specialist AOD treatment services across Victoria.

Typically, we are looking for students studying AOD, social work, or criminology for this program.
