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.
