Last week, Minister Fiona Nash, the Commonwealth Government’s Assistant Minister for Health made the decision not to continue funding the Alcohol and Other Drugs Council of Australia (ADCA). The Federal Government had made a commitment in April 2013 to provide funding for ADCA to 2015.

ADCA has a library and information service called the National Drugs Sector Information Service which is used by hundreds of doctors, social workers, psychologists and other health professionals working with the most vulnerable Australian families. The library has a collection of 97,000 essential and often unique items.
