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.

In times of crisis we often turn to alcohol or other drugs to help us cope, so it's not surprising that one in four Australians will develop an alcohol, drug [or gambling] disorder during their lifetime and around one in 20 will develop an addiction.
