NCETA advises a NSW-based school on evidence-based school drug policies

August 2017

In reviewing its drug policy, and seeking advice about evidence-based AOD programs for schools, an independent school in NSW contacted NCETA for guidance.

NCETA was able to assist the school in its review by providing advice on:

  • Formulating effective and evidence-based drug policies for schools including strategies for engaging parents and the broader school community
  • The efficacy and implications of school-based drug testing
  • Examples of evidence-based school AOD programs.

In addition, NCETA also provided the school with copies of some of its publications and resources on school-based alcohol and other drug programs and practical strategies to support students on making the school-to-work transition.
