Abstract

Recently there has been growing concern that current strategies for responding to alcohol and other drug problems fail, or are less effective in regional, rural and remote areas of Australia. While this seems plausible, little is known about the current state of affairs in non-metropolitan areas because there is little research. This chapter critically reviews how well current policies are able to respond to alcohol and other drug use in regional, rural and remote Australia. It begins by examining the evidence that is available regarding the extent of use, and the effects of these substances amongst people not living in metropolitan areas, and concludes by considering how well recently introduced criminal justice policies and practices concerned with drug and alcohol related offending work in rural, regional and remote settings.
