WRAD would like to wish all our wonderful participants and staff of our various programs and those volunteers and supporters of WRAD a very Merry Christmas and the best wishes for a Happy New Year. We hope that 2021 will be a good year for you all. Our wish for you is to keep safe and healthy. Enjoy the holiday period with your family and friends and at the same time relax and enjoy the break.

WRAD and the Handbury Medical Suites will be closing at 3.00pm Thursday December 24 and re-opening on Monday January 4, 2021 at 9.00am.

Christmas can be a difficult time for many and we wish to extend support to you and remind both those struggling with substance use and those loved ones of someone with a substance use problem that support is available.

It’s times like these that support is most beneficial and yet it’s also a time that’s hard to talk to others about what is really going on. If you wish confidential face-to-face counselling contact us at 1300 009723 or ring ACSO 1300 022 760 to make a referral. If you just want to talk with others of ‘lived experience’ then consider the various mutual aid groups like Narcotics Anonymous https://www.na.org.au/multi/ , Alcoholics Anonymous https://aa.org.au   and SMART recovery https://smartrecoveryaustralia.com.au for people dealing with the substance use problems.

For families and loved ones there is Family Drug help 1300 660 068, BeSMART family and friends group https://smartrecoveryaustralia.com.au/online-smart-recovery-meetings-2/ and Al-Anon https://www.al-anon.org.au/
