VAADA is the peak body representing Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) services in Victoria; and provides leadership, representation, advocacy and information to both AOD and non AOD related sectors.

 VAADA supports safe workplaces, there is however a lack of evidence as to the widespread effectiveness of workplace drug testing;
 Targeted programs in some workplaces may be of benefit where there is a high risk of severe harm from alcohol and other drug use in some occupational groupings;
 It is important for government to establish a framework detailing minimum standards to ensure consistency and fairness through consultation with employers and employee groups.
 VAADA supports the evolution of evidence based strategies, hence the use of pilots and evaluation strategies are a key factor.
