Indivior is the world leader in addiction treatment with 20 years of experience and a unique, patient-focused approach. We didn’t become the world leader in addiction treatment overnight. Our endeavor started small, with one singular focus – to intimately understand the journey of individuals suffering with addiction. People with addiction are often stereotyped and discounted, creating an environment where many are under-diagnosed, undertreated and under-supported. They’re often unaware of their treatment options, have limited access to treatment, or simply don’t seek it out because they’re afraid of being stigmatized.
We believe that an Australia free from alcohol and drug harm will be an Australia that’s safer for us all. We know real change can only come from a ‘whole of community’ approach, so our efforts are focused on working collaboratively with the community to deliver results with measurable long-term impact. We believe in using the latest research and insight to develop primary prevention policy and practice that reduces the impact of alcohol and other drug misuse in the community. Our work draws on the science of alcohol and other drugs and the most recent thinking in community development and mental health to develop innovative approaches designed to address the underlying causes of harm. We bring a collaborative approach to everything we do, because we know that only by working together can we prevent those at risk from falling into harm’s way.
WHOS provides therapeutic programs aimed at achieving recovery from alcohol and other drug dependence, incorporating harm reduction and co-existing mental health initiatives. WHOS provides a range of evidenced-based therapeutic programs and projects targeting individuals seeking a treatment goal of abstinence, opioid reduction or opioid stabilisation.
