About The Conference

The Conference will highlight the contributing role that harmful alcohol and other drugs use has on the health and life expectancy of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the interventions that are required to close the life equality gap that exists between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous Australians by the year 2030. It will also highlight emerging alcohol and other drug related issues that are threatening to further increase the gap if effective interventions are not utilised. For the first time the National Indigenous Drug and Alcohol Conference will include a pre-Conference workshop. This workshop will focus on amphetamine type stimulants including crystal meth or ‘ice’ as it is commonly referred to. This will provide delegates with an opportunity to learn more about these substances and what interventions can be utilised to address the harmful effects of their use. This focus will continue into the Conference itself where a yarning circle will be held to develop an Indigenous specific response to the effects these drugs are having on individuals, families and communities.
