ADCA: Alcohol and other Drugs - "In or Out of Health Reform?"

The Federal Government Budget investment in the national binge drinking strategy is welcomed, says Mr David Templeman, CEO of the Alcohol and Other Drugs Council of Australia, but this will not be enough to significantly reduce alcohol related harm in Australia. He stated that to effectively address chronic disease in Australia, the alcohol and other drug (AOD) sector must receive the same attention as that of tobacco, and other major health care actions like the $449 million announced for coordinated care for people with diabetes.

Mr Templeman emphasised the need for clarification as to whether and where AOD services fit in the primary health care reform.
