4 In May of this year the Mareeba Therapeutic Community welcomed its first residents In May of this year the Mareeba Therapeutic Community welcomed its first residents. The opening of this facility was the culmination of a lengthy process of negotiation and planning involving the program funders, the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing, the local community and the Queensland Drug and Alcohol Council represented by its former Executive Director, Mary Alcorn. In May 2012, the Queensland Drug and Alcohol Council (QDAC), the Gold Coast Drug Council (GCDC) and the Alcohol and Drug Foundation Queensland (ADFQ) merged under the corporate umbrella Live Life Well. With a combined history of service provision spanning nearly 80 years, the Live Life Well group has grown to become a leading non-government provider of alcohol and other drug services in Queensland. It is noteworthy that Live Life Well now has three residential facilities, all of which operate within a Therapeutic Community framework. In addition to the QDAC program at Mareeba, there is Logan House, a 36 bed adult facility located in a semirural setting south of Brisbane and Mirikai, a 40 bed program for younger people, particularly those with significant levels of mental health co-morbidity. Logan House is funded through ADFQ while Mirikai is a longstanding program of the GCDC. Under the merger arrangement mentioned above, Life Live Well, Queensland Drug and Alcohol Council, the Gold Coast Drug Council and the Alcohol and Drug Foundation Queensland maintain their status as separate entities while sharing a common Board. Collectively the Board brings an impressive depth and breadth of governance experience to their deliberations. I wish to acknowledge and thank my fellow Board members - David Tapsall, Raylee Taylor, Amelia Callaghan, Cheryl Herbert, Damian Wright, Allan Barbeler, Dr Michael Bolton and Dr Jeremy Hayllar. While Boards have clearly defined governance functions and responsibilities, an organisation s 2 QDAC Annual Report

5 Chairman s report service footprint is more likely to be shaped by engagement with and responsiveness to its consumers and community stakeholders. QDAC has indeed been fortunate in being able to draw on the experience and expert advice of an Advisory Group with a membership that is rich in experience and deep in knowledge around clinical, cultural and community matters. We appreciate and value their commitment and generosity. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the staff for their involvement and effort in getting the facility operationally ready. Barry Scott Chairman

6 Together, as Live Life Well, we are that much more than the sum of our parts 2012 will stand as a watershed year for Queensland Drug and Alcohol Council (QDAC) in its merger with two iconic service providers the Gold Coast Drug Council (GCDC) and the Alcohol and Drug Foundation Queensland (ADFQ), under the corporate umbrella of Live Life Well (LLW). It has been my privilege to be a part of this historic event. I was fortunate to work closely with Gold Coast Drug Council s Executive Director Mary Alcorn (retired) who was a driving force in the merger and whose contribution to the sector over 25 years is unparalleled. While the merger process has not been without its challenges, I am confident that we will look back and view the emergence of LLW as a positive and strategically sound initiative one that positions us favourable to respond to both the opportunities and challenges that we might encounter in the future. The merging of three organisations under a single entity is not a simple process. In addition to the legal and governance matters, there is a raft of corporate and operational issues that need to be addressed for example, integrating human resource and accounting and payroll systems, corporate branding activities, designing and deploying an ICT system to support the group s operations. My thanks to all those who have contributed in these areas for without their time, effort, knowledge-base and commitment, we would not be in the sound position we are today. I would also like to extend my appreciation to all staff for their patience and continued strong work ethic during a period that was not without a degree of uncertainty and understandable anxiety for some. I also thank the previous GCDC Board, who presided over the organisation s operations for the majority of the year, for their admirable dedication and service. As I would also acknowledge the membership of the QDAC Advisory Group who have provided a local context and critically important cultural advice as we strive to ensure that the Department of Health and Ageing funded Mareeba Therapeutic Community delivers 4 QDAC Annual Report

7 CEO s report appropriate and relevant services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. There is little doubt that we are currently experiencing significant change in our service delivery landscape and that change, per se, is likely to be a constant in any future operating environment we might envision. The challenge for organisations in the non-government sector is the same: how do we optimally fashion ourselves to thrive in such an environment? responsive and resourceful in our approach and judged by our service purchasers and partners to be a low risk, resilient, reliable and accountable organisation. I believe that we are better placed than we were this time last year to deal with the future, no matter what it brings. I believe that over the coming year we will continue to consolidate and develop. Together, as Live Life Well, we are that much more than the sum of our parts. Mitchell Giles Chief Executive Officer In part the answer lies in establishing ourselves as an efficient, high quality service provider - connected to our consumers and community;
