Alcohol and Drug Foundation

Celebrating more than 55 years of service to the community, the Alcohol and Drug Foundation (ADF) is Australia’s leading organisation committed to preventing and minimising the harm caused by alcohol and other drugs.

We were established in 1959 to support the many post-war veterans who were suffering from alcohol dependence as a release from the trauma of war. An empathetic and humane approach has always been central to our work.

From modest beginnings, the Alcohol and Drug Foundation continues to evolve. Trauma continues to be a major factor for individuals and communities who find themselves facing the challenge of alcohol and other drug misuse. To help overcome this, we are increasing our focus on building safe, healthy, and resilient communities.

Our ongoing work aligns with the Australian National Drug Strategy that declares “efforts to promote social inclusion and resilient individuals, families and communities” are a key objective within the demand reduction pillar.

We are proudly evidence-based, independent and funded by state and federal governments. We bring expert knowledge and research into the design and implementation of our programs. We reach millions of Australians in their communities through sporting clubs and workplaces, by supporting and informing drug and alcohol prevention programs, and through the provision of educational information.
