Mission, Vision, Values
Addressing alcohol and drug-related issues:
Reducing harm and supporting positive change.
Our vision is to have a society that is protected from the harm that can result from alcohol and drug use. To do this we need to address alcohol and drug use directly and also the other related social factors that contribute to substance use problems such as mental health, poverty, employment and housing.
We can do this through approaches that result in the prevention of substance use problems at individual, community and societal levels, providing effective intervention that supports positive change that reduces the harm caused by substance use and supporting recovery.
Our values are the core beliefs of ASCERT that should be reflected in all its activity and are experienced by everyone that encounters the organisation, they are:
ASCERT will demonstrate integrity in everything we do, acting honestly and reflecting moral and ethical principles.
ASCERT will be open and transparent in its conduct and be answerable to its members and stakeholders.
ASCERT believes there is hope in every situation, and with the right help at the right time, every person can achieve change for the better.
ASCERT will be sensitive to changing needs, consider opportunities to innovate and adapt in order to be effective in the delivery of outcomes for our service users.
