Sometimes people who use alcohol or drugs need more than just the support of friends and family.
There are many health support services available to people who want to change the way they use, or stop using, cannabis. Drug services are here to provide confidential support and assistance, not to get anyone in trouble.
Speaking with your health professional can be a good place to start. If you don’t already know a health professional you can find a health service in Canberra.
The Canberra Health Services Alcohol and Drug Service provides information, advice, referral, assessment and support 24 hours a day. The service is available to all residents of the ACT—for people affected directly or indirectly by drug or alcohol use.
The service is available to any ACT resident who thinks they, or someone they know, needs support with an alcohol or drug problem.
Contact the Alcohol and Drug Service on (02) 5124 9977 or (02) 5124 1580.
ACT Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drug Association (ATODA) website also has a number of services available via their online service directory.
In an emergency always call triple zero (000).
