Contingency management (CM) is a paradigm developed in the USA and found to be one of the most effective treatment options for managing methamphetamine dependence.

This study seeks to understand the awareness, preferences and responses to communication of drug alerts of people who use illicit drugs.
This study involves semi-structured interviews with people living with CNCP conducted either by telephone or face-to-face (Randwick, Sydney), depending on the preference and location of the participant.
This PhD project aims to inform substance dependence prevention and treatment by utilising population-representative epidemiological and observational data to develop and validate models of substance dependence related outcomes.
Methamphetamine use in Aboriginal communities has gained much media attention, despite limited research studies to ascertain the full extent of its use and its impact.
