Family Drug Help is a program that provides practical help, information and support to families and friends impacted by someone’s drug and alcohol use.

We provide professional and peer-based services across Victoria. We know what it’s like because we’ve been there.

We deliver responsive, integrated programs to communities across Victoria, using our specialist skills and our personal understanding to support and empower families.

A unique part of FDH is our emphasis on the value of lived experience. Our experience tells us that people who have ‘been through it themselves’ are regarded as particularly effective sources of support. This is because they recognise the nature of the stresses, the dilemmas of coping, the competing needs and the ambivalent feelings towards their relative.
