How to get help

There are many ways you can get support about drug related issues. Our support lines are serviced by drug counsellors 24/7, with dedicated lines for alcohol and drugs and for parents and families.

Do I need help?

It's not always easy to recognise that you need help with your drug use. We've compiled a list of questions that can help you work out if you, or a friend needs help with drug related issues.

Helping others

Having a close relationship with someone who is using drugs can be difficult and emotionally draining. Their use can cause them to behave erratically, and it can be difficult to know how to act around them. We can help you understand the problem, how to help and how to cope with aggressive behaviour.
