Drug Aware is a program that targets young people with messages about illicit drug use that focus on the prevention of use and associated harm. We agree that alcohol is responsible for a significant amount of harm, and this is a very important message that the community needs to hear. Alcohol is a priority that we address under our Alcohol. Think Again banner (www.alcoholthinkagain.com.au). However, illicit drug use still causes preventable harm and injury, and we think this is also a very important issue that needs to be addressed.
