The Indigenous Australian Research team at NDRI was contracted by Jungarni-Juntiya Alcohol Action Council to undertake an evaluation of its existing services, and carry out a needs assessment to identify what other alcohol intervention services, if any, were needed in Halls Creek. The research involved both qualitative and quantitative methods, and included: a community survey; statistical analysis of hospital, police, and project data; and, a review of documentary project data. It found the existing services were generally effective and that there was broad community support for an expansion of preventative programs.
