Drug Aware

Drug Aware is a program that targets young people with messages about drug use, focussing on the prevention of drug use and associated harm. It aims to do this by providing credible, factual information that people make informed decisions.

Do you need some information about drugs? Or have you got a question about your own or someone else’s drug use?

To contact Drug Aware you can:

  • Email (external site) – Your email will be answered as soon as possible during business hours, as this service is not staffed 24 hours a day.
  • Chat online (external site) and confidentially to a qualified alcohol and other drugs counsellor (click chat button on home page). This service is provided free-of-charge for residents of Western Australia and is operated between the hours of 7.00am and 11.00pm.

If your question cannot be answered, you will be pointed in the right direction.

Where to get help
  • Call one of the Alcohol and Drug Support Line 24 hour support lines (external site) – providing confidential counselling, information, advice and referral
  • For emergency or life-threatening conditions, visit an emergency department or dial triple zero (000) to call an ambulance – police are not called unless a death has occurred or ambulance officers are threatened
