Rovers Australia

Drug and Alcohol Guidelines

Rover Scouts Australia recognises the need to promote the responsible use of alcohol at all activities conducted by Australian Rovers. Likewise it recognises the need to discourage the use of all illicit drugs and the use of prescription drugs responsibly. Illicit drugs of all forms are NOT acceptable within Scouts Australia.   

The NRC Drug and Alcohol Guidelines form the basis of the acceptable standard of behaviour for all members of the Rover Scout Section.

Alcohol and drug use is a contemporary social issue with particular relevance to the Rover Scout Section age group.

In adopting the policy, the Rover Scout section seeks to raise awareness of the issue, to educate its members on what is appropriate alcohol use and promotion, to help its members to develop skills to recognise and deal with excessive alcohol use and to provide access to further resources and support.
