Michael and Tex this week chat with Thorne Harbour Health’s Alcohol and other Drug Team Leader Nic Robinson-Griffith about our alcohol and drug consumption over the past year, and how we can support one another in improving our health and wellbeing when it comes to substances. We discuss services to help folk manage their use, to check-in, and make our use safer.


Later Michael and Tex catch up about how to cope with social isolation over the holidays, something our community has become adept at over the tumultuous year of 2020.


For Thorne Harbour Health services head to:
