Getting Help

It’s not always easy to recognise that you need help with your alcohol or drug use. If you are concerned about your own, or another person’s alcohol or drug use, you can contact the Alcohol and Drug Support Line 24/7 on (08) 9442 5000 or 1800 198 024 (country callers) or email

For emergencies call 000

How to get help

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



The medics are here to help you, not call the Police*

It's safer not to use drugs, but if someone does and starts to have problems - get help fast! Call an ambulance on 000 or if you're at a festival go to the First Aid Tent.

*The Police will not attend unless there is a death or someone is threatened.
