Finding help for alcohol and other drug problems

South Australian Government's Response

The South Australian Government is committed to reducing the harms of alcohol and other drug use. The range of impacts requires a co-ordinated whole-of-government approach. To achieve this, South Australia has been guided by an alcohol and other drug Strategy since 1997.

South Australian Alcohol and Other Drug Strategy 2024-2030

The South Australian community is being invited to have their say in reducing and preventing the harms caused by alcohol and other drugs.

The draft South Australian Alcohol and Other Drug Strategy 2024-2030 is now out for public consultation on Consultation will close on Tuesday 23 July 2024.

The Strategy focuses on 5 priority areas:

  1. Health promotion and prevention
  2. Disruption and supply reduction
  3. Early and targeted intervention
  4. Treatment and support
  5. Engaging communities.

Additionally, the draft South Australian Alcohol and Other Drug Strategy 2024-2030 has an increased focus on workforce development, and evidence and data systems.

While this Strategy is for the whole community, it acknowledges that alcohol and drug-related harms are not experienced equally across populations, and that these harms may be exacerbated by disadvantage and stigma.

The Strategy has been developed by Preventive Health SA and SA Police in consultation with a number of government and non-government partner agencies including Drug and Alcohol Services SA, Local Health Networks, South Australian Network of Drug and Alcohol Services, and Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations.

This feedback will be used to inform the development of the South Australian Alcohol and Other Drugs Strategy 2024-2030.
