‘Support the Family – Improve the Outcome’

The International Family Drug Support Day theme for 2018 ‘Support the Family – Improve the Outcome’ is based on longstanding and well researched evidence. It also reflects families advocate Tony Trimingham’s own experience in seeing the positive outcomes for the person using drugs, the family and the wider community as a result of proper support.

The International Day is also targeting governments to ensure families are able to access the support they need and to encourage families to take that step and seek that support. The International Day also seeks to reduce the stigma and discrimination for families and drug users and promote harm reduction strategies.
