It's all about health


Alcohol is the most widely used legal drug in Australian society. It is so widely used that many people don’t think of it as a drug, and may not realise that it can be harmful.

Alcohol is a significant cause of:

  • Injury and ill health
  • Road accidents
  • Violence
  • Crime
  • Family breakdown

Alcohol-related harm to health is not limited to drinkers but also affects families, bystanders and the broader community.
