Documentary - Addicted Australia
Turning Point is proud to partner with SBS and Blackfella Films on the factual documentary series, Addicted Australia.
We are in a crisis when it comes to addressing addiction in Australia.
Treatment for addiction is more chronically underfunded than any other area of healthcare, largely because it is not seen as a legitimate health condition. This is reinforced by media portrayals of addiction, prevailing community stigma, and entrenched beliefs that patients are to blame for their condition, and that treatment doesn’t work. This collective denial continues despite costs associated with alcohol and drug-related harms to Australian society exceeding $55.2 billion annually.
It's time to change that - which is why we took part in the documentary!
