Drug and Alcohol Information Resources

Illegal drugs, and the misuse of legal drugs, can effect an individual, their families and friends and the community in a number of ways.

If you are concerned about your own or another person’s drug use we encourage you to seek professional help and assistance.

There are always risks associated with drug use. No use at all is the safest option.

Drug Information

Check out the Drug Information section of our website for information about drugs, their effects and where to turn to for support.

If you suspect an overdose call triple zero (000) immediately.

In an emergency or crisis situation always call triple zero (000) for police, fire and ambulance and follow instructions.
