The ACT Drug Strategy Action Plan 2018-2021 (the Action Plan) outlines ACT Government priorities to address and minimise harms from alcohol, tobacco, illicit drugs and non-medical use of pharmaceuticals in the territory.
The Action Plan aligns to the framework provided by the National Drug Strategy 2017-2026 and describes the territory’s priorities and activities to be progressed within the context of national action.
The ACT Government is committed to working collaboratively on the priorities outlined in the Action Plan. We are committed to investing in evidence based and practice-informed harm minimisation responses to alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. We lead the country in innovative policy approaches, as demonstrated by the successful introduction of Australia’s first pill testing trial.
An Advisory Group with broad representation will be set up to help guide prioritisation of activities, implementation and evaluation of the Drug Strategy Action Plan.
