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. 

In the meantime, we are pushing additional resources towards our 24/7 Support phone line:

24/7 Telephone Line: 1300 368 186

You can call this line anytime for Family support.

An additional option is to visit the FDS:

Website:  https://www.fds.org.au/

Where you will find resources/tools and on-line videos which you will find beneficial.

Family Drug Support Online for Families:  https://www.fdsonline.org.au/

Interactive tool based on a typical Support Group.

We apologise for any inconvenience but assure you that as soon as we are able to, it is our priority to resume 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.
