New directions for alcohol and drug treatment services: A framework for reform

Tackling alcohol and drug misuse in the community is a high priority for the Victorian Government. Reform of the alcohol and drug treatment system is a key part of a broader, whole-of-government strategy to decrease Victoria's alcohol and drug toll. Reducing the alcohol and drug toll: Victoria's plan 2013-17 presents a 15-point plan to work together with the whole community to promote the safe, healthy and responsible use of alcohol, tackle the misuse of pharmaceutical drugs, reduce illegal drug use, and assist the care, treatment and recovery of people with drinking and drug problems.
