DARTA has developed partnerships with a number of organisations and agencies and continues to support them in a variety of ways. Some of these collaborations include the following:
Club Health International Conference – due to the research Paul Dillon has conducted in the ecstasy and related drugs area, in 2002 he was invited to be a member of the Conference’s International Steering Group and continues in this role today.
RRISK Seminars – first developed in 1999, the RRISK program now reaches almost 5000 Year 11 students from 51 schools across northern NSW from Tweed Heads to Port Macquarie. Paul has been the keynote speaker at this event since 2000 and continues to be a proud supporter of this innovative program.
KIDS Foundation Teensafe Program– similar to RRISK, the Teensafe Program aims to provide young people with some basic information on alcohol and other drugs. Once again Paul has been involved with the program since it first began and it provides those attending the opportunity to think about their safety and encourages them to make informed safe decisions.
