For people supporting someone using alcohol or other drugs

We are pleased to announce the commencement of a six-month trial for family and friends of a moderated online discussion forum. This will provide an opportunity to share experiences with people within the community who might be going through a similar experience to yourself. We also have psychologists and social workers who will contribute and moderate this site. It is available from 10 January 2022.
