Graham House in Murgon will be hosting a DrugARM family and community expo on February 5 designed to provide information to people who are supporting others with drug or alcohol problems.

The day will consist of an expo in the morning highlighting local services which are available (from 8:30am to 10:30am) followed by a “Breakthrough Our Way” training workshop from 10:30am to 2:30pm.

The workshop, which will have an Indigenous focus, will be delivered by the Queensland Aboriginal and Islander Health Council (QAIHC).

“Breakthrough Our Way” is part of the State Government’s “Action on Ice” strategy and is funded by the Department of Child Safety, Youth and Women.

Four service providers, including DrugARM, have been delivering Breakthrough Our Way sessions around Queensland.

Other services which will be present at the Graham House community expo include:

  • CRAAICHS – Cherbourg Regional Aboriginal & Islander Community Controlled Health Services
  • Lives Lived Well
  • Family Drug Support
  • Queensland Council of Social Services
  • QAIHC – Queensland Aboriginal and Islander Health Council
  • Murgon Men’s Shed
  • QNADA – Queensland Network of Alcohol and Other Drug Agencies

The local Drug Action Team will also be giving out red balloons.

DrugARM also has several other events planned for Kingaroy.

Free community sessions on alcohol and drugs will be held at the Uniting Care building, 1 Victoria Street, from 9:30am to 11:30am on February 18, March 24, April 21 and May 19.
