Important Information

FDS Update regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Unfortunately, FDS has had to make the difficult decision, based on information and directives received from the Government that we must temporarily close our Support group/s and Courses.

However, 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, we will resume our groups and courses.

We appreciate your patience and wish everyone the very best during this period of uncertainty.
