Families impacted by drug use gather in Parliament House for major event
Families impacted by drug use – along with alcohol and other drug (AOD) experts and Federal politicians – will mark International Family Drug Support Day by gathering in Parliament House’s Dame Enid Lyons Alcove on Wednesday, 24 February to raise awareness about how families can be better supported when a family member experiences problems with alcohol or other drugs.
Family Drug Support CEO, Tony Trimingham, said families were often distraught when a family member experienced substance use issues, and that many suffered unnecessary and cruel stigma and discrimination as a result.
