ATCA Conference 2023

31 Oct. 2023 to 2 Nov. 2023

The Australasian Therapeutic Communities Association (ATCA) will host its 34th Conference in Sydney from Tuesday 31 October to Thursday 2 November at the Mercure in Sydney. This will include site visits to ATCA member organisations on Tuesday 31 October, followed by the Conference at the Mercure on the following two days: Wednesday 1 November and Thursday 2 November.

The focus areas for the 34th ATCA Conference are: Inclusion, Innovation, Impact, Sustainability. These focus on the celebration of Therapeutic Communities now and into the future.

The ATCA conference will bring together professionals working in Therapeutic Communities, researchers and clinicians in the Alcohol and other Drug (AOD) filed and affiliated areas. Therapeutic Communities (TCs) and other Residential Rehabilitation Services (RRS) are an integral part of a comprehensive response to alcohol and other drug issues in our community, nationally and internationally. The ATCA Conference reflects this and has a broad appeal to those working in the field of addiction, mental health, justice, and child protection. It tackles issues of significant importance around alcohol and other drug use, comorbidity, adult, family and youth populations in community and correctional settings, and the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, Mãori and Pasifika peoples.

Importantly, it celebrates the many innovations in the treatment field spearheaded by ATCA member organisations, challenges us in our practice, and provides the opportunity to converse, learn, grow, and thrive in a changing environment.
