The National Authority for the Campaign against Alcohol and Drug Abuse (NACADA) which is a State Corporation established under the NACADA Act, 2012 to coordinate a multi-sectoral effort towards prevention control and mitigation of alcohol and drug abuse in the country, requires all Public Sector institutions to mainstream activities aimed at reducing the prevalence of alcohol and drug abuse at the workplace.
The 2020/21 Financial Year guidelines require that Ministries, State Departments, Parastatals and SAGAs, Universities and tertiary institutions to undertake Alcohol and Drug Abuse (ADA) Baseline Surveys by 31st December, 2020 for evidence-based programmes.
The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) is among the fifty (50) institutions which were randomly sampled to undertake a National ADA baseline survey to generate data to inform the National status of ADA in the workplace.
