The National Drug Research Institute (NDRI) conducts and disseminates high quality research that contributes to the primary prevention of harmful drug use and the reduction of drug related harm in Australia.
NDRI, which was formed in 1986, plays a key role in national harm prevention strategies through research designed to establish the preventive potential of legislative, economic, regulatory and educational interventions.
NDRI is located at Curtin University's Health Research Campus in the western Perth suburb of Shenton Park and receives core funding from the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing.
