Presented by LLW & QNADA

The 2017 Australian Winter School Conference is presented in partnership between Lives Lived Well and Queensland Network of Alcohol and other Drug Agencies (QNADA).

We look forward to bringing you a momentous event in this, our 30th anniversary year.


Lives Lived Well is one of Queensland’s leading non-government support organisations for people who have problems with alcohol or drugs. Many of the people we work with also have mental health concerns.

Lives Lived Well was formed following the merger of the Alcohol and Drug Foundation Queensland, Gold Coast Drug Council and the Queensland Drug and Alcohol Council in May 2012.  Our services extend across Queensland and include both residential and non-residential programs.

With a collective history of service provision spanning nearly 80 years, the Lives Lived Well group are experienced service providers, with over 150 staff and 40 volunteers working with clients throughout Queensland.

We provide a range of services designed to influence behaviour, reduce harm, aid recovery and bring about positive change.  When our clients are ready to address their issues, we are there with the tools, time and talents to support them.

We believe passionately that people can change, that addictions can be overcome, stigmas can be overturned, and lives can be transformed.

We believe that every individual has the right to live with dignity. And that every day gives us a new chance to reach out, and help rebuild the lives of people in need.
