The development of this portal is supported by and undertaken within the School of Pharmacology in the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Adelaide.

The University of Adelaide has been funded by the Federal Department of Health to scale up screening and intervention for substance use disorders in primary healthcare using the ASSIST. 
The portal is for health and welfare professionals to develop knowledge and skills on how to assess and intervene while the ASSISTplus site is to enable self-assessment by people who consume substances.
