Jayden’s story

“I met the worker from Anglicare after I was cautioned by the police for possession of a cannabis plant. I thought it was going to be a rap over the knuckles and I just went to get it over and done with.

But we talked about more than smoking dope.

We talked about the separation from my long-term partner, and about the hassles my step-son was causing.  It was full-on and I even cried, but I walked out thankful for the opportunity to dump on someone else. I was treated with respect and I did not feel judged.

I rang that worker the next week and I continued to see her regularly. We talked a lot and she helped me get things sorted out. Sometimes it was just to talk or for information on other local support people. She recommended I see a doctor and the medication I’ve started on really helps.

I’ve got a job now, and have put the worst behind me.”

Funding 

Break O’Day alcohol and other drug services are supported by the Crown through the Department of Health Tasmania.
