The purpose of this report is to assist the work of the National Indigenous Drug and Alcohol Committee (NIDAC), the leading voice in Indigenous alcohol and other drug policy. NIDAC’s aim is to reduce alcohol and other drug problems and associated harms in Indigenous communities nationally. Funding support for the report was received from the Office for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health. This report brings together national data on substance use among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to provide a comprehensive picture of smoking, alcohol and illicit substance consumption patterns and how these have changed over time. The report also includes data on the links between substance use and health, and the use of alcohol and other drug treatment services by Indigenous Australians (Author abstract).
