Breakthrough for Families Queensland is a new program designed to provide information and support to families and significant others of individuals affected by methamphetamine and other substances.
Funded by the Department of Child Safety, Youth and Women until 30 June 2020, the program involves the provision of free public alcohol and drug (AOD) information sessions and connection to specialist workers who can provide brief intensive support to family members and significant others.
Insight were engaged by the Department to develop the package of tools and resources for families working in collaboration with QAIHC and Family Drug Support.  We are pleased to advise that this program has now been officially launched and that Lives Lived Well, Drug Arm, Bridges Health and Community Care, Apunipima and QAIHC have employed Family-focused AOD Workers to deliver the package across the state.
