New website to support Queenslanders struggling with alcohol and drugs

People struggling with alcohol and drugs will now have easier access to assistance and treatment options thanks to a brand new Queensland Government website.

The Alcohol and Drug Information Service (ADIS) website has been launched by Queensland Health, providing a suite of information and resources for not only individuals, but for families and health professionals too.

Minister for Health and Ambulance Services Steven Miles said the site was developed as part of the State Government’s Action on ice plan, which launched earlier this year.

“Queenslanders made it clear there was a need for a central point of truth with information and support about alcohol and drug abuse,” Mr Miles said.

“The ‘ADIS’ website is designed to be just that and will support Queenslanders and their families in need of assistance with their alcohol and drug consumption.”

Minister Miles said the website will include self-assessment quizzes so people can gauge if their alcohol intake or drug use is putting them at risk.

“In addition to busting myths, the website provides a list of alcohol and drug treatment options available across Queensland and helpful resources for health professionals,” Mr Miles said.
