The ADF’s mission is to prevent and minimise the harm caused by alcohol and other drugs in Australia. Central to this is ensuring communities across the country have timely access to relevant, accurate and evidence-based information that will assist them to:

  • make informed decisions relating to drug use
  • understand the consequences of drug use
  • participate in drug prevention efforts.

About Information Services

We are supported by the Australian and Victorian Governments to do this through the provision of accessible information – made available through various publications and a range of on- and offline resources.
