  • Identify the 5 stages that families experience and effective ways to respond.
  • Learn how to communicate more effectively with families in a work and/or professional situation.
  • Develop understanding and gain skills to assist families to build resilience and improve the outcome for both the person who uses the drug and the family.
  • Recognise the importance of psycho-social education for a family, in relation to the significant barriers they may face.

Important Information

 FDS Update regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)

 As FDS is a National organisation, we operate across a number of jurisdictions.

 We work with the information being provided to our workers in each state regarding

 re-opening of groups and courses.  Therefore, not all States will re-open at the same time.

 As our groups/courses/events re-open, our website will be the most up-to-date source of accurate information.

If you require support please call our Support Line:

 24/7 Telephone Line: 1300 368 186

We have protocols in place to ensure yours and our staff safety. Each venue determines the size of our groups and workshops. During this difficult time, if you are seeking any clarification please call the facilitator.

 We apologise for any inconvenience but assure you that as soon as we are able to, it is our priority to resume all our groups and courses on a regular, on-going basis.

 We appreciate your patience and wish everyone the very best during this period of uncertainty.
