The Youth Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) Service Review is a self-assessment tool for Queensland youth AOD service providers to improve health services for young people. This tool is intended to help youth AOD services describe the features of their service or program that makes them accessible and responsive to the needs of young people. The tool is also intended to help guide services to identify any potential gaps. With repeated use of the tool, services can capture and record improvements over time. It is recognised that there will be gaps identified by the tool which will be outside the scope of services to change due to geographical issues, building limitations or different funding agreements. It is hoped that this tool can help support services to maintain the focus on being youth appropriate and friendly.
