Time to Rethink Addiction

Addiction remains a common yet widely misunderstood health condition with prevailing stigma that prevents affected individuals from seeking information and support. Building on the ground-breaking SBS series, Addicted Australia, Turning Point has launched a public campaign to Rethink Addiction.

Watch the video below to find out why it’s important to join the campaign.
