This tool is designed to help workers guide a conversation with AOD clients and families around how to manage stress using sensory-informed strategies. It contains basic psycho-education on sensory modulation, an activity to identify helpful sensory inputs as well as a range of general tips and ideas for coping with a crisis or cravings.  

This tool was developed in collaboration with AOD and sensory specialists from across Queensland.
