Register now for sessions in November and December
Since 2015, this unique program has helped family members across Victoria better understand drug use, improve communication and wellbeing, and access appropriate support networks. BreakThrough offers practical strategies and provides an opportunity for family members to connect and learn from each other.
BreakThrough sessions are free and go for 1 hour. Facilitators present on a particular topic and encourage discussion and Q&A.
It’s important to note that BreakThrough is an education program and while each session includes group discussion about a particular topic or theme, people requiring more intensive support in relation to their own circumstances are strongly encouraged to contact Family Drug and Gambling Help on 1300 660 068 to speak to a trained volunteer with personal experience of a loved one’s drug use.
