An Australian Alcohol and other Drugs Council (AADC) survey to guide effective and compassionate drug policy reforms

Your voice matters in shaping our nation’s drug policies!

Participate in the Australian Alcohol and other Drugs Council (AADC) Drug Policy Survey conducted in collaboration with Harm Reduction Australia (HRA), Family Drug Support (FDS) Australia, and Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP) Australia.

Purpose:

This advocacy survey aims to gather perspectives on current drug policies and potential reforms from key groups affected by existing policies. Your input will guide advocacy efforts towards more effective, just, and humane drug policies.

Participation Details:

The anonymous survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. Your responses are entirely voluntary, and you can exit the survey at any time. By participating, you consent to the survey, and your data will be kept strictly confidential.

Confidentiality:

Your information will be stored securely and used only for advocacy purposes. Reports will be presented at an aggregate level, ensuring your individual responses remain anonymous.

Collaborating Organizations:

HRA is a national charity organisation for individuals committed to reducing the health, social and economic harms potentially associated with drug use. HRA is a volunteer, membership-based organisation that represents the views of people working in the health, welfare, and law enforcement sectors, but also concerned community members, consumers and other individuals wanting to advocate for the continuation and expansion of harm reduction policies in Australia.

FDS is a not-for-profit charity that provides up to date information on all aspects of drug and alcohol use relative to the families and carers of people who use drugs. FDS operates in multiple Australian jurisdictions such as NSW, QLD, ACT, VIC, and SA. FDS offers a national 24/7 support line for families affected by drug issues, runs peer support groups, community workshops and its flagship program Stepping Stones, along with other online-based services.

SSDP is a community advocacy organisation led by students and young people, formed of national volunteers and student clubs at affiliated universities. SSDP Australia empowers, coordinates, and represents a grassroots network of Australian students and young people to advocate for drug law reform, aiming to build a platform for students and young people to speak about issues that matter to them.

Your participation will help us understand community perspectives and drive positive change.
