Community Drug Action Team (CDAT)

Griffith Community Drug Action Team (CDAT)  is a community group funded by the Australian Drug Foundation to address local drug and alcohol misuse or issues impacting the community. 

Since 1999, CDATs have led thousands of activities to engage at-risk youth, educate parents and the wider community through community activities and campaigns to curb alcohol-fuelled violence and drug use. The ADF supports the CDATs through the Community Engagement and Action Program (CEAP) funded by NSW Health.

Membership is fluid which allows people to participate when they have the time and the passion. Membership is available for agencies, organisations and individuals - local residents are encouraged to join the committee.

CDAT meet on the first Wednesday of each month, 1pm at Griffith City Library. (meetings suspended during COVID 19)

CDAT also has a strong partnership with the Griffith Liquor Accord, Griffith Local Area Command, Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education 

CDAT will work towards maximising the resources of Griffith Local Government Area through networking and partnership activities.
