Alcohol-attributable hospital admissions and alcohol-related emergency department presentations in the Northern Territory.
Alcohol related hospital admissions and emergency department presentations to NT public hospitals over the period 2001 to 2013.
The Central Australian Alcohol Public Awareness Campaign (CAAPAC) began in January 2011. The campaign used a web-centric strategy to provide information about alcohol and alcohol consumption targeted at young people, and as a portal for the 115 media entries that were created by young people. A competition selected 11 winners and subsequently the chosen entries were publicised through TV, radio and posters, as well as online and mobile memes May 2011- January 2012. The campaign used the tag line 'Tell 'em that's enough' in all media with five by-lines which could be used to support seven distinct secondary messages around population health, domestic violence, binge drinking and safe drinking.

|2005||The Alcohol and Other Drugs Program (AODP) has a key focus on the development, delivery and contracting of alcohol and other drug interventions and programs to help people with substance misuse problems. $8.5 million is invested each year to provide these services, most of which are delivered through a range of non government agencies across the Northern Territory. In January 2005, the AODP commissioned Health Management Advisors to conduct a review of services and interventions. The objectives of this review were to analyse current treatment services, as a whole and within each region, to determine the degree to which current arrangements meet regional needs. Additionally the consultants would review each service and make recommendations about meeting best practice where applicable.||Full details|
