We believe a collective effort works . . .

How we formed

Lives Lived Well was established in May 2012 following the merger of three key alcohol and drug service providers: the Alcohol and Drug Foundation Queensland, the Gold Coast Drug Council, and the Queensland Drug and Alcohol Council.

With a collective history of service provision spanning nearly 80 years, Lives Lived Well is a well-credentialed and experienced service provider, with over 200 staff together with dedicated volunteers.

As Lives Lived Well we will continue to be the type of organisation who:

  • has pride in our people and our work
  • doesn’t just talk about it, we do it
  • are here to work with you and will support you to take action.

Lives Lived Well is a registered charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission, find us on the charity register here.

Lives Lived Well acknowledges the peoples of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australia, and upholds and respects their continuing connection to land, culture and community. We pay our respects to elders past, present and future.
