Preventing alcohol and drug problems in your community

Prevention Research, June 2014

Contributors: Dr Matthew Dunn, Dr Fiona McKay and Berni Murphy, Deakin University; and Geoff Munro and Dr Katrin Hausdorf, Australian Drug Foundation

Editor:  Kate James, Australian Drug Foundation

We can’t rely on governments or harm reduction measures any longer to reduce the number of people who die or suffer each year from entirely preventable alcohol and other drug (AOD) related causes. Grassroots community prevention programs can have a significant impact on reducing these harms.

Prevention can be challenging, but this publication looks at best practice approaches to prevention that communities can use to help them achieve the greatest impact from their programs and campaigns.
