Alcohol Misuse

Alcohol is associated with many aspects of Australian culture and social life. The misuse of alcohol results in illness and premature deaths from disease, accidents and violence.

In this portal, you will find a range of information, local resources and prevention projects aiming to reduce the harm of alcohol misuse in the Eastern Metropolitan Region.

Working towards this effort is the Action on Alcohol Flagship Group which aims to reduce alcohol related harm through a primary prevention approach, and Communities that Care Knox which addresses alcohol misuse among young people.


2019 Annual Alcohol Poll: Attitudes & Behaviours from FARE provides a snapshot of Australia's relationship with alcohol.
