Someone in my family drinks a lot of alcohol or uses drugs.
What help is there for family and friends?
Family support or family counselling services help families think about the best ways that they can help a person who is drinking alcohol or using drugs. They also help families to support a person who is trying to stop or reduce their use of drugs or alcohol.
Family support services help families take care of themselves during difficult times. Family support can be information and education, one-on-one (individual) counselling or counselling in a group.
Family and friends can call the Family Drug Support Line on 1300 368 186 or go to the website www.fds.org.au for information and help.
