Banned Drinker Register

 

Overview

From 1 September 2017 all Territorians and visitors to the Northern Territory will need to show photo identification (ID) to buy takeaway alcohol. The aim of the program is to prevent a person who is on the Register from purchasing alcohol at liquor outlets.

There are a number of ways someone is banned from purchasing takeaway alcohol and placed onto the register. These include:

A range of therapeutic support options will be in place to allow people who are placed on the Register to get the help and support they need to deal with alcohol abuse. The new model provides additional pathways for a person to be placed onto the Banned Drinker Register including through referral by hospital emergency department nurses or doctors, GPs, child protection workers or family and carers.
