The Family Drug Support group (FDS) is a caring, nonreligious and non judgemental organisation primarily made up of volunteers who have experienced first hand the trauma and chaos of having family members with drug dependency.
They have travelled the same road and now the mission of FDS is to assist families throughout Australia to deal with alcohol and drug issues in a way that strengthens relationships and achieves positive outcomes.
Their energies are given in primarily supporting families struggling as a result of drug use and they aim to assist in any way possible to empower families to cope with the realisation of their situation and to survive it intact.
To this end FDS offer a seven day, 24 hour telephone line Australia-wide, manned by volunteers offering help to diffuse crisis, offering strategies for coping and giving any information required.
FDS believe that families are important as they are the ones who understand their family member more so than anyone else. If left to work through issues in isolation, families can become exhausted and give up. However, when supported they can become a vital force for positive change.
FDS is committed to working with professional organisations and forming constructive partnerships.
Armed with collective wisdom, FDS has adopted a view of harm minimisation and aim therefore to reduce the adverse health, social and economic consequences of drug use for the community and for the individual.
FDS does not condone or encourage illegal behaviour of any kind but does, however, has a commitment to the reform of some drug laws. They believe the use of all drug substances should be decriminalised and would like crimes committed as a result of drug use be carefully assessed and where possible, perpetrators diverted to treatment and not sentenced to jail.
FDS has no sympathy or tolerance for major crime i.e. violence/drug importation and they also believe that legal drugs can be harmful and abused as well as illicit drugs.
