About the National Drug Research Institute (NDRI)

The NDRI mission is to conduct and disseminate high quality research that supports evidence informed policy, strategies and practice to prevent and minimise alcohol and other drug-related health, social and economic harms among individuals, families and communities in Australia. NDRI research has informed and contributed significantly to policy and evidence-based practice in Australia and internationally.

The Program is led by an Aboriginal Senior Research Fellow Dr Jocelyn Jones. The Research:

Focuses on the inter-related topics of changing patterns of AOD use, factors related to, and the impact of, harmful use on individuals, families and communities, efficient and effective provision of services, and improved policy responses.
Is based on well-established partnerships with Aboriginal community controlled health organisations, with Aboriginal community stakeholders and organisations actively involved in all aspects of research from planning through to translation into policy and strategies.
