This paper was developed by the National Indigenous Drug and Alcohol Committee (NIDAC) in response to the misperception that effective alcohol and other drug (AOD) treatment is not available for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

The paper aims to reduce these misperceptions by outlining:

  • who can benefit from receiving treatment
  • what treatment is known to work
  • key principles that should guide the application of treatment
  • what constitutes effective treatment for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

The paper focuses upon interventions that are evidence-based and directly related to addressing AOD use. It does not cover interventions that have a prevention focus.

This report presents the results of a study which aimed to determine the effectiveness of past and existing alcohol restrictions applied throughout Australia. The study found that alcohol restrictions in Indigenous communities are effective but only where community consultation has occurred. The study also suggests that these restrictions should be complemented with measures to address the underlying causes of alcohol misuse. The report aims to provide practical guidance for Indigenous communities addressing alcohol related problems.
