‘Tough Love’ drug talk
Drug rehabilitation advocate and Shalom House founder Peter Lyndon-James will give a talk in Baldivis to educate families on how to assist drug-affected loved ones.
Mr Lyndon-James said help was needed for families to be able to identify what stage of addiction their loved ones were at, so that help could be directed to them.
“We want to let families know of the options available to them,” he said.
“Meth is the most evil drug to ever hit our planet.”
The talk has been organised by City of Rockingham councillor Matthew Whitfield who claims drug addiction is on the rise in the area.
“In Baldivis, and surrounding suburbs, there are many circumstances that have seen drug addiction on the increase and as a community leader my job is to try and help where I can,” he said. “I really believe that Peter’s tough love methods can help people locally.
“I urge anyone who is suffering from any addiction to attend, or those families of addicts, as this presentation will be well worth your time.”
The Tough Love seminar will be held at the Mary Davies Library in Baldivis on Wednesday, January 23, from 6-9pm.
Entry is free, to RSVP contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 0419 011 709.
