AbstractThis study evaluates the performance of Alcohol and Drug Awareness Courses (ADAC) provided in the Australian Capital Territory. The following were examined: key performance indicators on the provision of ADACs, their efficacy in changing the attitudes and knowledge of attendees, and their effect on drink driving rates in the ACT. Completion rates for individuals enrolled in the courses have been increasing. Surveys of attendees suggested that the courses improved their attitudes towards drink driving. Also, ADACs may have contributed to reductions in drink driving detections. Based on these findings, the ADAC program has been performing well since its inception.
