Today's guest is Tony Trimingham. Tony is the recipient of an Australian Humanitarian Award. He is author of the book, “Not My Family, Never My Child”, he is a psychotherapist and counselor and he is the founder and CEO of a family-centered harm-reduction program called Family Drug Support Australia.

From what I can tell, Tony has always been a helpful person and counseling was of great interest to him, but he never thought much about drugs or addiction or how those things might impact people or their families. . . .  until his son Damien developed a destructive relationship with heroin. 

Damien died of a drug overdose— an overdose that Tony believes could have been prevented if he and others knew then what he knows now. And that’s why started Family Drug Support Australia:  an organization that has provided comfort, education, and a regained sense of empowerment to thousands of families across the world.

The Family Drug Support philosophy is one that Families For Sensible Drug policy is in the process of mirroring, here in the U.S. You can learn more about those efforts here http://fsdp.org/2019/02/14/familydrugsupportday/
