The National Addiction Centre (formerly the National Centre for Treatment Development (Alcohol, Drugs & Addiction)) was established by the Alcohol Advisory Council of New Zealand (ALAC) in 1996 particularly as a resource for the alcohol and drug treatment field of New Zealand.

 

Vision Statement


" A university-based centre dedicated to improving treatment and prevention of addiction and related problems for people in Aotearoa New Zealand."

 

Main Activities

There are three main activities by which the National Addiction Centre aims to achieve its mission:

  • Research projects
  • Teaching and training programmes
  • Consultation and liaison

It is intended that output from the NAC research will motivate both the teaching and consultation activity of the Centre in line with three guiding principles.
