Family Drug Help Helpline

  1. About this service

    Family Drug Helpline offers a confidential telephone service which provides support to family members in need. Our helpline is staffed by trained volunteers (9am to 5pm Monday – Friday), ordinary people who are just like you: mothers, fathers, grandparents, brothers, sisters, husbands, wives, partners, sons, daughters and friends. Sometimes people may feel they need to talk to someone who knows what it’s like to love someone who’s misusing drugs or alcohol. After hours service is staffed by professional counsellors.

    To speak to a person with family experience call Monday–Friday, 9am–5pm. After hours calls are answered by trained counsellors.

    • Support and understanding
    • Information, resources, and referrals to other services
    • Linkage with other Family Drug Help programs and services
    • An interpreter option so you can speak to us in your language
