The use and misuse of licit and illicit drugs is widely recognised in Australia as a major health problem, and one that has wider social and economic costs.
Drug misuse is a serious and complex problem, which contributes to thousands of deaths, significant illness, disease and injury, social and family disruption, workplace concerns, violence, crime and community safety issues.
In Australia, research shows that about 1 in 5 people drink at levels that put them at risk of harm over their lifetime. A similar number of people drink at least once a month at levels that put them at risk of accident or injury and nearly 15% of people in Australia report using illicit drugs.
