Turning Point, SHARC and The Bouverie Centre to deliver Family Drug Education

Hands in the air

The Victorian Government is investing $1.48 million to develop a new education program for families as part of the Ice Action Plan.

A consortium of Turning Point, Self Help Addiction Resource Centre (SHARC) and The Bouverie Centre will deliver the new program.

The education program is designed to help people recognise when someone has a drug problem, and how to support them to get treatment.

Around 1,000 Victorians will be able to access this innovative, new education program each year, which will start in October.

This initiative is part of the Victorian Government’s $4.7 million investment to support families affected by ice and other drugs.
