Parent drug information service (PDIS)

 

Overview

The Parent drug information service (PDIS) is a 24-hour, confidential telephone service for parents and families in Western Australia (WA). Located within the Alcohol and drug information service (ADIS), professional counsellors and trained parent volunteers offer support, information and referral to parents and families across WA. The service is free and provides information, referrals, Drug Court support, and community education. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander alcohol and other drug workers, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers, and other health professionals are available to provide advice. The service also produces Indigenous-specific promotional brochures.

The Parent volunteer support network is also a component of this program, consisting of parents who have all experienced a son or daughter using drugs, who have been selected, trained and supervised to provide telephone and community support to other parents across WA.
