ADIS has recently been added to the list of helplines available to people living on Norfolk. It can be accessed either as a freecall (1800250015) or as a web chat. Information from the ADIS website indicates that the service is available for people who may be experiencing issues with alcohol or other drugs and for those concerned about someone else’s alcohol or other drug use. It is there for general questions about these topics and can be called anytime of the day or week for support, information, counselling and referral. The web chat option is available Monday – Friday 8.30am – 5pm (NSW time). For more information check out https://yourroom.health.nsw.gov.au/getting-help/Pages/adis.aspx .
This is one of many helplines now available on Norfolk as a freecall or for the cost of a local call. Refer to the Community Services page of this paper for a full listing or visit the NIHRACS website (www.norfolkislandhealth.gov.nf)
