The ACT Government is currently preparing the ACT Drug Strategy Action Plan 2022-2026 (the Action Plan) to replace the ACT Drug Strategy Action Plan 2018-2021 that concluded in December 2021.
The next Action Plan will outline ACT Government priorities to address and minimise harms from alcohol, tobacco, illicit drugs and non-medical use of pharmaceuticals in the territory from 2022 to 2026.
The Action Plan will align with the framework provided by the National Drug Strategy 2017-2026 and will describe the territory’s priorities and activities to be progressed within the context of national action.
The Government has released the final progress report for the 2018-2021 Action Plan. The report highlights the constructive steps taken by government, non-government organisations and private providers to implement the 43 actions contained in the plan.
The government has released a policy review of the Action Plan, fulfilling a commitment in the Action Plan to a formal review. The review examined how the Action Plan functioned to guide action towards harm minimisation in the ACT between 2018 and 2021. The review makes recommendations for how the next plan could be enhanced to further prevent and minimise alcohol, tobacco and other drug related harm. The review was collaboratively produced by the ACT Government and stakeholders from the alcohol and other drug sector.
