Event description
Events are being held around the country to mark the International Family Drug Support Day in February 2020.

About this Event

"Any family anywhere, regardless of background, economic and other circumstances can be affected by drugs. We hope this annual event will reach members of the community and change some of the negative attitudes that exist." Tony Trimingham, Founder and CEO of Family Drug Support.

"The weight of the world was on my shoulders. We were so ashamed and alone - then we found support and things changed" Viola - Mother

The three objectives of the National Day are:

  1. Reducing stigma and discrimination for families and drug users
  2. Promoting family drug support services for families and friends
  3. Promoting harm reduction strategies for families and friends

In addition, the following issues are expected to be highlighted:

  • The important role of FDS volunteers in providing family support across Australia
  • Reducing fatal and non-fatal overdoses from drugs including pharmaceuticals
  • Promoting the widespread availability of naloxone products
  • Promoting greater support and resources for treatment services
