Who is behind the Family and Friends Support Program (FFSP)
The online program was developed by researchers and clinicians at the University of Newcastle in conjunction with the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre, University of New South Wales. Expert guidance was also provided by researchers and clinicians from the University of Bath, UK and the Addiction and the Family international network (AFINET). Funding for this program was provided by the Department of Health, Australian Government.
FFSP was informed by input from community members across Australia and we would like to thank the individuals who generously gave us their time and shared their stories to inform the content of the program. We are also grateful to community members who provided feedback on the development and refinement of this online program.
