Abstract

[Extract] Why Beat da Binge was developed:

• Concern about binge drinking among young people after closure of the Community Development Employment Program (work for the dole) in Yarrabah, a north Queensland Aboriginal community, in July 2009;

• Binge drinking occurred at parties on dole days and for coming of age celebrations for 18 and 21 year olds;

• Funding through the National Binge Drinking Strategy in September 2009.
