About the Drug Foundation

Friday, September 4, 2009

Whether we like it or not, New Zealanders use drugs. Drug use can cause social, health and economic harms and cost individuals, families and communities dearly.

Preventing and reducing harms from drug use is a big challenge and one the New Zealand Drug Foundation has taken on.

The Drug Foundation has been at the forefront of major alcohol and other drug policy debates for more than 20 years. During that time we have advocated strongly for policies and practices based on the best evidence available.

Ko tēnei rōpū e mōhiotia nei te Tūāpapa Tarukino o Aotearoa, he rōpū kaitiaki. Ko tana whāinga matua kia āraia atu te kino o te mahi kai tarukino, kai waipiro, kai tupeka hoki i ngā wāhi katoa o Aotearoa.

Our work is supported in a number of ways: including government funding, corporate and private grants and donations, as well as by our members.

We are a registered charitable entity under the Charities Act 2005 (registration number CC27025).
