About Us

Established in 1992, NCETA was a collaborative venture between Flinders University and SA Health. Since 1999 NCETA has been funded by the Australian Government Department of Health through the National Drug Strategy. NCETA is located within the School of Medicine at Flinders University in South Australia.

NCETA is one of three national research centres in the AOD field. The other Centres are the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre (NDARC) in Sydney and the National Drug Research Institute (NDRI) in Perth.

In line with international trends and changes in the AOD sector, the focus of the Centre over the last few years has shifted from training and education to workforce development (WFD).
