Restrictions on the sale and supply of alcohol: evidence and outcomes.

Perth: National Drug Research Institute, Curtin University of Technology

This report presents the results of a study which aimed to determine the effectiveness of past and existing alcohol restrictions applied throughout Australia. The study found that alcohol restrictions in Indigenous communities are effective but only where community consultation has occurred. The study also suggests that these restrictions should be complemented with measures to address the underlying causes of alcohol misuse. The report aims to provide practical guidance for Indigenous communities addressing alcohol related problems.
