PHN funding continued to tackle methamphetamine use

Since its inception in 2016, the NIAS has helped thousands of people gain access to treatment programs and supported communities to tackle local drug and alcohol issues with local solutions.

Under the NIAS, drug and alcohol treatment services are commissioned by Primary Health Networks and designed to meet local needs. This funding commitment ensures that critical treatment and other programs are continued and improved.

This is particularly important for high-risk population groups, including people in rural and regional areas and indigenous communities.
