Nimbin CDAT (Community Drug Action Team) 


The Nimbin CDAT exists primarily to reduce drug-related harm by:

1.  Improving the level, range and access to alcohol and other drugs services and treatments available to the community;

2. Preventing the initiation into harmful and hazardous drug use, especially by young people.

*Nimbin is defined for the purposes of CDAT as being the area enclosed within a 30km radius from the centre of the village.


1.       To increase safe and healthy environments, both social and physical, which promote prevention and reduction of drug related harm;

2.       To work collaboratively with other local agencies, services and community groups to address alcohol and other drug related problems in the community;

3.       To work towards a more positive (and accurate) profile of Nimbin.

Local Survey

During 2015 a survey was conducted of people who use drugs in the community to inform the priorities and directions of the Nimbin CDAT.
