As a student at UWA, your life extends beyond the classroom. Making healthy and safe decisions, including whether or not to use alcohol or other drugs, is one of the added challenges you may have to face while at university.
Our Alcohol and other Drug Strategy, aims give students the knowledge, skills and support to make informed choices around alcohol and other drugs.
The Alcohol and other Drug Strategy, or previously known as the Tertiary Alcohol Project, has been running at UWA since 2002, with a wide range of strategies from awareness-building to treatment for problematic alcohol and other drug use.
The Strategy places a focus on preventing and minimising alcohol and drug related harm through education and training, while advocating for the environmental supports needed for students to make healthy and safe choices.
The aim of this strategy is not to tell you whether you should or shouldn't use alcohol or other drugs. It is to give you the knowledge and skills to make informed decisions around your use so you can protect yourself and others.
