Description

‘Straight from the Source’ looks at a range of different issues relevant to those impacted by drug and alcohol use from varying perspectives and talks real, honest stories, straight from the source.

The podcast broadcasts stories which challenge stereotypes around addiction and substance use and opens up conversation around the areas of life where substance use intersects such as mental health, homelessness, family violence, parenting issues and the criminal justice system.
Through hearing peoples stories we hope to increase awareness, challenge stigma and open up the space for multiple perspectives around substance use, self-growth and recovery. These stories assist individuals and communities to feel heard and less alone. They also incite discussion around Australian Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) systems and the challenges within them.

We will have more guests and more stories coming to you monthly.
