A message from our partners at Lives Lived Well:

Concerned about a family member's drug or alcohol use?
Want to play a more supportive role?

Families can access FREE support through attending information sessions or individual counselling (online, phone and face to face counselling available).

No referrals required – just call us!

Lives Lived Well will be delivering free public Information Webinars across Queensland in the coming weeks.

We will be running two separate sessions to cover the content of our usual Community Family Information Sessions.

Part One – Communication:
• Topics include:
o Physical and mental effects of substance use
o Brief history of substance use in society
o Why people use substances
o Overview of methamphetamines (ice)
Part Two – Family Strategies
• Topics include:
o How to set workable boundaries
o Stages of Change for Families (loss and grief)
o Where to go for more help
o What are treatment options?
