Steps to Wholeness


Frankston Family Drug Help Support Group

Do you have someone in your life with drug or alcohol problems?

Do you seem to be going round in circles with the same thing happening over and over? Where can you go to be amongst people who understand and to learn strategies that help you cope and gain support?

The strain of living with someone else’s problem behaviour is more than most people can cope with alone. In a support group members are with others who have travelled a similar journey. Attending groups regularly can reduce feelings of fear, anxiety, depression, helplessness and shame by gaining support, information and ongoing learning.

Our support groups are based on a highly successful model of learning and peer support. At each meeting you will learn about addiction, positive ways to respond to addictive behaviours and other associated issues which adversely affect families. You will have the opportunity to share your story, hear and learn from other’s experiences in a warm, supportive and non-judgemental


Meets every 2nd & 4th Thursday of each month from 6.00pm - 8.00pm
