This is a collaborative project between the Southern Aboriginal Corporation and the National Drug Research Institute. Utilising a community consultation process, this study will identify risk and resilience factors and opportunities for intervention and enable an Aboriginal community controlled organisation to develop an evidence-based strategy to address the harmful effects of substance use at a local level.

There is currently intense interest in finding efficient and reliable ways to inform evidence-based liquor licensing decisions. This multi-stage project will develop a model to assist in predicting the likely impacts of proposed/planned licensing changes on a range of alcohol-related indicators (e.g. emergency department presentations, road crashes, assaults) within WA and other Australian jurisdictions.

Aboriginal Australians experience a disproportionately high burden of alcohol-related injury and violence compared to the general population.These elevated rates of alcohol-related harm among Aboriginal Australians require a targeted approach. This project will examine the cost-effectiveness of a community empowerment and positive reinforcement intervention for reducing alcohol-related injury and violence among Aboriginal people.

April 2014

This project will enable NCETA to provide guidance to schools on the essential features of effective school-based alcohol education programs.

April 2014

This research will analyse the key concept underlying much of the political struggle over AOD policy and service provision: addiction.
