Esteemed Author of “Drug Addiction in Australia” and “Every Precious Breath”, Tom Valenta has been writing the history of Odyssey House Australia for the past two years.
Tom has researched and interviewed many people who have been connected to Odyssey House including current and former staff and Board members as well as clients and supporters. Tom has also looked through a substantial number of old newspaper clippings, newsletters, correspondence, submissions and photographs.
This historical project is almost at its end and we are indebted to Tom for his relentless enthusiasm and persistence. When the book is printed, a launch for all those involved with Odyssey across the years will be announced. Watch this space for further details.
