The Alcohol and Other Drug Consumer & Community Coalition (AODCCC) is the peak body for alcohol and other drug consumer-driven systemic advocacy in Western Australia. Our aim is to empower the voices of consumers, their families and supports, ensuring the health and wellbeing of our community. 

The AODCCC was incorporated in June 2018 in response to the need and support for an alcohol and other drug specific, consumer-driven advocacy body. We have received funding from the Mental Health Commission in order to progress our establishment.
