About Us

Our Purpose

To prevent and minimise the harm caused by alcohol and other drugs in Australia.

Each year in Australia: 5,500 people die from alcohol related injuries, illness and accidents.

  • 157,000 people are hospitalised due to alcohol.
  • More people die from drug overdoses—including from pharmaceuticals—than die on the roads.
  • The cost to the community from alcohol-related harm is estimated to exceed $15.3 billion. For illegal drugs it exceeds $8.2 billion.

All of these are preventable.

Our Mission

We work in partnership with others to support and create evidence-based policies and practice that prevent and minimise the harm caused by alcohol and other drugs.

We are community-centric.

We co-design our evidence-based programs with communities and support them to build capacity to create change.
