2017 Remembrance Ceremonies

RemembranceHas anyone in your family died as a result alcohol or other drug use? For the past 20 years Family Drug Support has held ceremonies to remember those who have been lost.

These are simple ceremonies which involve music, reading of names and lighting candles. For details about remembrance ceremonies around the country, see here:

If you would like a candle lit and  a name read and added to our Memorial Wall, please contact our Head Office on 02 4782 9222. These events have brought comfort to many families over the years, as we focus on the people, not the drugs used.

Family Drug Support Now Online for Families

FDS Support Online3 April 2017

Tony Trimingham, the Founder and CEO of Family Drug Support (FDS), has described how proud he is with the development of the first Australian interactive online resource designed specifically to support families struggling to deal with drug and alcohol problems.

The New resource is available here:

This project was funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health through the National Ice Action Strategy. It has been produced by Readymade Productions in collaboration with FDS staff and volunteers.

The resource centres on the documentary film of a family support group, and will be of particular benefit to families in regional and rural communities who don’t have ready access to support group meetings. The new resource, together with FDS’ 24/7 telephone support line, will help ensure every family can access support when they need it.
