In 2015 QNADA were funded by North Brisbane Partners in Recovery (PiR) to develop a suite of harm reduction resources as part of a dual diagnosis project.
We recognised the need for more accessible information about the potential interactions of commonly prescribed mental health medications and licit/illicit substances, so developed a series of harm reduction resources focusing on these interactions. The resources have been developed in collaboration with a psychopharmacologist, an addiction medicine specialist, a social worker and a psychologist. The information included in these resources highlight a range of possible interactions and do not take into consideration your biology or individual circumstances. If you have any concerns we recommend speaking with a health professional. If this is an emergency, dial 000.
