Tasmanian Drug Strategy 2023-2028
The Tasmanian Drug Strategy is a whole-of-government and whole-of-community strategy.
It aims to create a Tasmania where people make healthy choices about alcohol, tobacco and other drugs use, and can access support where and when they need it.
To achieve this, it provides a framework to:
- guide collaborative action and activities across both the Government and community sectors, and
- support agencies and organisations to consider the impacts of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs (ATOD) use and harm in their strategic policy responses.

Developing the next Tasmanian Drug Strategy
The Department is leading the development of the next Tasmanian Drug Strategy through the Interagency Drug Policy Committee (IDPC). Extensive industry consultation has taken place and a community consultation is underway.
For more information, visit Community consultation: Tasmanian Drug Strategy 2023–2028.
Following the community consultation, the draft strategy will be revised and then progress through Government for endorsement. Due to additional feedback received and the decision to hold additional rounds of public consultation, the Tasmanian Drug Strategy will now be released in the first half of 2023.
