Expanded Drug and Alcohol Specialist Advisory Service

2 December 2019

St Vincent’s has recently expanded the Drug and Alcohol Specialist Advisory Service (DASAS) to include two Clinical Nurse Consultants (CNC) in addition to Addiction Medicine Specialists.

The DASAS phone line is a free telephone service for doctors, nurses, and other health professionals from any part of NSW, who require advice on the clinical management of alcohol and other drug issues.

Funded by NSW Health and operated by St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney staff, you will be offered advice from experienced CNCs initially and be connected to on-call addiction medicine specialists if required for further clinical advice.

DASAS is especially designed to support regional and rural health professionals in NSW, but is available to all NSW health professionals.

The service is free, and is available seven days a week. The service will often respond to your enquiry immediately. If this is not possible, the service will respond within 24 hours.
