The national drug strategy, Reducing Harm, Supporting Recovery, sets out government policy on drug and alcohol use for the period 2017 to 2025. The strategy established the National Oversight Committee to give leadership and direction to support the strategy, and provided that the Minister for State with responsibility for the drugs strategy would chair this committee.

The Committee meets on a quarterly basis and is chaired by the Minister of State with responsibility for the National Drugs Strategy.

The Committee has a cross-sector membership from the statutory, community and voluntary sector, as well as clinical and academic expertise. The strategy provides for membership at Assistant Secretary level. It was a matter for the Minister of State to determine the final membership of the Committee.

The current membership of the National Oversight Committee is set out below
