Back to Family Drug Help

Our support groups are an opportunity to connect with others who are having similar experiences. They have an educational component and are a forum for you to share what’s going on for you in a supportive space.

Our support groups operate all year round in various locations around the state.

“The group has had a life changing effect on me. No longer do I feel the isolation that used to surround me, now I have learnt new ways of coping.”

Please phone our Helpline on 1300 660 068 to find a group near you.
