Added 21/07/2017

I am very pleased to advise you that the Ministerial Drug and Alcohol Forum has approved the next iteration of Australia's National Drug Strategy.

The Strategy can be viewed / downloaded at  A limited number of hard copies of the Strategy are being printed, and should you wish to order a copy please contact National Mailing and Marketing at

For the first time the Strategy will cover a ten year period (2017-2026), with progress to be carefully monitored by the Council of Australian Governments. 

The Strategy was informed by public and stakeholder consultations and identifies the agreed national priorities for preventing and minimising the harms of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs to individuals, families and communities. 

It is now the responsibility of each jurisdiction to take these priorities forward. 

I look forward to working with you on the implementation of the Strategy.
