Family Drug Support (FDS)

Family Drug Support is a caring, non-religious organisation which provides non-judgemental, non-directive support and information to families and friends of alcohol/drug dependent people across Australia.
FDS believe families are important and any connection with the alcohol/drug user is critical.  Sadly, families are left to work through tough issues without support.  Their normal support network may not be enough despite everyone’s good intentions.
Family support is crucial when dealing with dependent alcohol and other drug use.  The journey for families is chaotic, often abusive and lengthy.  In order to cope better, to become resilient and to survive this journey, families need on-going support.  Without this, families can become isolated and helpless. 
FDS offers:
  • Regular family support meetings in both city and rural locations across Australia (Qld, Nerang and Carseldine)
  • 24-hour/7 day a week National Telephone Support Line 1300 368 186
  • Bi monthly magazine ‘Insight’
  • “Stepping Stones to Success” Courses
  • “Stepping Forward” program
  • Interactive website
  • Our revised information resource: “A Guide to Coping”
  • Membership to Family Drug Support
  • Bereavement Support
  • Youth Drug Support, education sessions for at risk youth or high school students
  • Training & upskilling workshop for staff and workers from other organisations 
FDS is a non-profit Non Government Organisation and relies on limited government funding and public donations to continue providing this support.
