Alcohol and drug addiction is an increasingly common issue for many Australians and can lead to any number of mental wellness issues, social problems, and poor health outcomes.
Many people can overcome mild drug issues with help from friends and family, support groups and removing themselves from situations that trigger their substance usage. However, many people who struggle with drug and alcohol addictions may require extra professional support to overcome these issues.
