Northam Shire Alcohol and Other Drugs Management Plan

The Northam Shire Alcohol and Other Drug Management Plan (NSAODMP) seeks to reduce the level of harmful alcohol and other drug use within the community by:

  • Actively supporting partnerships between community and service providers to identify and address local issues.
  • Provide a means to coordinate, implement and evaluate an evidence-based, whole of community approach in a timely and appropriate manner.

The NSAODMP was developed by local AOD stakeholders, with the support of the Drug and Alcohol Office, who work collaboratively to achieve the strategies of the Plan.

To view the NSAODMP, please go to Northam Shire Alcohol and Other Drugs Management Plan.
