Australian NZ Doctors in Recovery is a doctors’ mutual support group in recovery from addiction to alcohol and other substances. Dentists, vets and other health professionals with doctoral level qualifications are also welcome to join. We have a 12 step and abstinence focus, and are affiliated with International Doctors in AA. We aim to support each other in healthy living and medical practice free from addictive behaviours.
ADR aims to address the specific support needs of doctors and their families with confidentiality and respect. We acknowledge the need for advocacy and education to dispel the stigma and shame often associated with addictions
