Improve the Health and Wellbeing of all community members through the provision of resources and education aimed at reducing the impact of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs.
The Drug Education Network (DEN) is a non-government organisation funded to deliver a range of health promotion, prevention, and early intervention programs to reduce the harm associated with alcohol, tobacco and other drug (ATOD) use across Tasmania. We have a commitment to deliver services focused on community engagement and capacity building.
The DEN recognises socio-economic, cultural and gender factors influence usage and that disadvantage is often perpetuated through different system and service responses to different population groups.
Therefore the DEN work closely with communities and key stakeholders to identify and develop locally owned responses to concerns regarding alcohol, tobacco and other drug use.
Recognising that ATOD use and misuse affects individuals across the lifespan, DEN works from pre-birth to the senior years.

Evidence Informed Practice
The DEN remains a strong advocate for evidence informed practice in health and community services. The services and projects we undertake utilise current research and/or works to inform our understanding of what constitutes effective health promotion, education and prevention strategies.
