New Zealanders use drugs. That use can cause harms and add social, health and economic costs to individuals, families and communities. Preventing and reducing those harms is a big challenge for New Zealand, and it's a challenge the New Zealand Drug Foundation has taken on. Resources are available within New Zealand only.
