NSW Health Drug and Alcohol Plan 2006-2010
The Drug Summit in 1993 and the Alcohol Summit in 2003 highlighted the need to address the serious and sometimes tragic health, social and financial ramifications that drug and alcohol issues can have. The Summits provided additional funding from the State Government to address issues relating to illicit drug use and alcohol in NSW. A Whole-of-Government community approach has been taken to tackle these issues on all levels. Since then, drug and alcohol treatment services have taken a new direction.
The NSW Health Drug and Alcohol Plan 2006-2010 provides a clear framework on how to address drug and alcohol issues.
