Communities are safe, healthy and empowered to manage substance use, including pharmaceuticals and alcohol.
To support cost-effective approaches that maximise community health and safety in relation to drugs.
Frank and fiercely independent, we connect lived experience with research to improve the management of drugs through community engagement and knowledge sharing.
Penington Institute champions an open, rational, and compassionate approach to building and sharing knowledge to reduce drug-related harm.
We push for an effective regulatory framework for cannabis defined by public health goals, with priority placed on targeted prevention, education, and treatment.
Penington Institute is the global coordinator of International Overdose Awareness Day, the most visible of our initiatives tackling the overdose crisis.
