The Alcohol and Drug Foundation NSW is a charitable, not-for-profit organisation aimed at reducing the suffering associated with drug and alcohol abuse.

How we help

Encourage and conduct research into the management of harmful drug and alcohol use.

Participate in community education and forums to disseminate information and advocate for the needs of those affected by substance abuse.
