After two years of spruiking the message ‘Take Control, Limit the Alcohol’ it seems it’s been heard as the NT Early Intervention Pilot Program (NTEIPP) were acknowledged as National finalists in the 2012 Drug and Alcohol Awards – Excellence in Services to Young People.
Superintendent Helen Braam and NTEIPP Resource Officer and Youth Ambassador, Lauren Moss ventured to Melbourne’s Regent Theatre to accept the certificate on behalf of the NT Police and all of the Territory service providers and youth organisations the NTEIPP program supports.
While NTEIPP didn’t take out the overall award, Lauren agreed it was a good opportunity for us to showcase some of the great work being done in the Territory.
“I still take this as a win for the NTEIPP team and for the Territory to have a finalist in such a prestigious award, and I congratulate all of the winners” she said.
“It was a Good Hosts event, so it was great to see that in action and to try some delicious mock tails. There was also a group of young opera singers that performed and Helen and I were almost tempted to do a number ourselves.”
Odyssey House took out the Youth Services category and Professor Robyn Room was this year’s recipient of the National Drug and Alcohol Award’s prestigious Prime Minister’s award for Excellence in Alcohol and Other Drug Endeavours for his contributions to alcohol policy and research.
Well Done NTEIPP team!
