This research project looked at alcohol and other drug use in three Aboriginal communities from Arnhem Land, Northern Territory, and includes a prospective evaluation of a community-driven preventive young people initiative, and an examination of patterns of alcohol and other drug use and related mental health problems.
This study evaluated methods of operation, community acceptance, perceived impact, and likely ability to meet goals; and included community, staff and stakeholder interviews and observation. School attendance, young people apprehension rates, and information on levels of alcohol and other drug use were compared two years before and two years after the initiative was implemented.
