    Rethink Addiction

    Mon Sep 26, 2022 3:52 pm

    Hi Everyone!

    I just wanted to reopen up the discussion around the ‘Rethink Addiction’ campaign. In September 2022 the Rethink Addiction Convention was relaunched in Canberra.
    The campaign aims to create the conversations for change around Addiction within Australia. Its primary focus is to shed light on addiction, change the narrative, reduce stigma and Improve treatment and support options.

    You can read more about the ‘Rethink Addiction’ campaign here: https://www.rethinkaddiction.org.au/
    I’ve opened up this thread for anyone to share their thoughts, feelings and questions around the campaign.
    Feel free to share your story on this thread for other members of the community or within the campaign itself here: https://www.rethinkaddiction.org.au/shareyourstory

    I would also like to invite you all to sign the pledge to #rethinkaddiction here: https://www.rethinkaddiction.org.au/sign-our-pledge

    Lastly you can check out the ‘Real Stories of Addiction Videos’ here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCaUm34 ... NEl2h5wlA
    and feel free to comment on any of the videos below in the thread.

    I will be posting more video content from the campaign over the upcoming weeks.

    ‘An Australian dies almost every hour from alcohol, drug and gambling harm’
    ‘One in four Australians will struggle with alcohol, other drugs or gambling within their lifetime’

    'Addiction is not a choice. It is a health condition that can affect anyone of any age, background, socio-economic group, or profession.'

    So lets start the conversations to create the change that is needed.
