With the ground-breaking SBS series, Addicted Australia set to air in November 2020, there has never been a better time to Rethink Addiction.
Addicted Australia will provide a unique insight into addiction, stigma and treatment by following ten clients, their clinicians, peer support workers and families and friends as they take part in a six-month treatment program designed by Turning Point.
Addicted Australia will play a crucial role in changing community perceptions about the reality of addiction and elevating expectations about what treatment should look like. Rethink Addiction seeks to continue and elevate this work.
The Rethink Addiction campaign has a straightforward but crucial mission—to help transform Australia’s attitudes and approach towards addiction so we can form a national roadmap for change.
