Northern Territory early intervention pilot program

NTEIPP aims to support and enhance existing programs and services which address the issue of underage drinking, including:

NTEIPP also aims to promote brief interventions as a means to refer young people to appropriate services and programs via the NT Alcohol and drug information service hotline. Outreach officers are based in Darwin, Katherine and Alice Springs, and may visit remote locations where there are service gaps.
