Family support is a key factor in motivating alcohol and other drug misusers to control or reduce their drug use.
We recognise the vital role that families and friends play in helping alcohol and other drug users maintain good health and regain a normal life.
We help families by providing information and appropriate support through our telephone support line.
Family Drug Support are able to provide with support from FDS Australia an information kit entitled A GUIDE TO COPING to aid parents, families, and friends of alcohol and other drug misusers. The kit was designed to fill the serious gap in the availability of information and support. This resource also provides help on how to deal with crisis situations such as overdose and up-to-date information on treatment options.
We believe that by helping families of alcohol and other drug users we are ultimately helping the user. To achieve this we need your support. We mostly run on a volunteer basis. Therefore your subscription and/or donation will enable our organization to continue its work.
Membership benefits include: A free copy of A GUIDE TO COPING, invitations to events and discounts to activities and groups. Additional copies of A Guide to Coping are available to members at a reduced rate.
Membership is only $30 for one year, and only $70 for 3 years.
Members may purchase additional copies of A GUIDE TO COPING for a cost of $15 plus $5 postage per copy. If extra ordered please ring office or email us for postage costs.
