Australian Medical Association

Dr Omar Khorshid

President

"The Australian Medical Association is the peak professional body for doctors in Australia, promoting healthcare needs of patients and communities, representing doctors and working with governments to develop and influence health policy.

The AMA believes that substance dependence and behavioural addictions are serious health conditions and that those who are impacted should be treated like other patients with serious illness, and be offered the best available treatments and supports to recovery.

That is why we have joined the campaign to Rethink Addiction.”
