Abstract

This background paper describes the development of the National Drug Strategy Complementary Action Plan for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The paper describes the historical and contemporary context of substance use in the Indigenous population and the factors that may influence drug use. The extent and nature of the use of alcohol, tobacco, illicit drugs, petrol and other inhalants is described and literature on: control of supply; demand management; harm reduction; early intervention and treatment is reviewed. National, state and territory plans and strategies for addressing drug use are identified and their relevance to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people is outlined.
