Harm Reduction Australia is proud to be a supporter of the National Family Drug Support Day on the 24th February 2016 and as highlighted in the latest National Family Drug Support Day media release we recognise that not only can drug use affect any family but that it is wrong to base policy on the assumption that the millions of people that are using drugs in this country require criminalisation.
Following are recent messages of support we have received for the National Family Drug Support Day.
I take calls for Family Drug Support. So many callers say "I can't talk about these things to anyone else." I know how much it helps to have a listening ear, and the support our phone line provides. That's why awareness of FDS services is imperative - not just for individuals affected by someone's drug use, but also for D&A services, Health services and the greater community. Through awareness, we can reduce the stigma and judgement, and increase support for families.
