Your bequest will enable us to continue effectively with our work at ADAC To ensure the development of effective programs to reduce harm related to substance misuse in Aboriginal communities.
The Aboriginal Drug and Alcohol Council (SA)Inc was incorporated in 1993 as a direct result of the Royal Commission Into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody (RCIADIC). The Royal Commission's final report, contained over 387 Recommendations.
In South Australia the Aboriginal community from across the state met a number of times to discuss the Findings. It was agreed that as the majority of deaths had a drug and or alcohol related component, and considering that over 80 of the Recommendations were substance misuse related. A community controlled response was needed. After considerable discussion it was decided that one way to address the issues was to create a state-wide peak substance misuse organisation. In February 1993, the Aboriginal Drug and Alcohol Council (SA) Inc. was established. The acronym for the Aboriginal Drug and Alcohol Council (SA) Inc. is ADAC.
