Family members of people who use methamphetamine (ice) can feel isolated and uniformed. BreakThrough: Ice Education for Families is a free community education program for families who want to improve their relationships with drug-using loved ones.
The program covers key facts about ice, its effects on the brain and body, and strategies for discussing drug use with loved ones, responding to challenging situations and accessing support for the whole family.
Developed by Turning Point, Self-Help Addiction Resource Centre (SHARC) and the Bouverie Centre, BreakThrough is funded the Department of Health and Human Services.
With support from Bethany Community Support, Turning Point will present the BreakThrough: Ice Education for Families session on Wednesday 11 April, 6:00-9:00pm at Bethany Community Support, 16 Ballarat Rd, Hamlyn Heights.
The session is free, but bookings are essential. To register or find out more information, please visit: https://www.breakthroughforfamilies.com/attend/
Workers are more than welcome to attend also, and should RSVP directly to firstname.lastname@example.org
