Join WANADA on 21 February to learn more about the likely impacts and discuss what we might need to do.
From February 1, codeine will no longer be available without a script. 20% of over-the-counter users meet the criteria for dependence. 58% of dependent users report no problematic alcohol and other drug history, and 75% of them have never sought help.
Use in WA is above average, and Australia’s highest rates of use are in regional and remote areas.
What effects will this changed scheduling have on the AOD sector in WA?
