Western Australian Drug and Alcohol Strategy: 2005-2009


This strategy provides the broad direction for addressing problems relating to alcohol and other drug use in Western Australia for the years 2005-2009. Drug and alcohol use affects the entire Western Australian community. The State Government is committed to reducing the impact of alcohol and other drug use through a variety of strategies in the areas of prevention and early intervention; treatment and support; and law, justice and enforcement. The strategy builds upon the significant gains made under the previous drug strategy, achieved through the combined efforts of the Drug and Alcohol Office and key stakeholders, including the not-for-profit sector, community and other government departments. These gains include a more cohesive alcohol and other drug sector that is better integrated with broader human service sectors, including, but not limited to, justice, policing and health.
