Community Drug Action Teams (CDATs) are informal groups of community members, Local Health Districts, and representatives from other government and non-government agencies who volunteer to work together on alcohol and other drugs issues affecting their local community. There are more than 70 CDATs across NSW.
NSW Health has supported the CDAT Program since its creation in 1999.
Commencing January 2021, an Odyssey House NSW-led consortium will manage the CDAT Program. Karralika Programs, Bila Muuji Aboriginal Corporation Health Service and The Buttery are also members of the consortium. The program was previously managed by the Alcohol & Drug Foundation from 2013 to December 2020. In February 2021, a new CDAT website will be launched by the consortium.
If you would like further information on the CDAT Program, please contact Director of Programs for Odyssey House NSW, David Kelly at
