Acknowledgement of Country

WANADA acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the Traditional Custodians of this country and its waters. We wish to pay our respect to Elders past and present and extend this to all Aboriginal people seeing this message.


Established in 1984, the Western Australian Network of Alcohol and other Drug Agencies (WANADA) is an independent, membership-driven not-for-profit organisation that takes a 'whole-of-community' approach to alcohol and other drug issues.

WANADA is governed by an elected Board comprising delegates drawn from our membership. WANADA employs a small paid staff and is funded by members and both state and federal governments.


To enhance the health and wellbeing of all Western Australians by:

  • reducing the harms associated with alcohol and other drug use; and
  • enabling a strong and viable alcohol and other drug service system.


To lead a shared voice within the specialist alcohol and other drug service sector that drives positive change needed to achieve best community outcomes.

  • Drive sector implementation of, and policy support for, the principles of self-determination

  • Lead a coordinated approach to sector-wide development that enhances best practice and equitable access


  • Quality
  • Integrity
  • Sustainability
