    Addicted Australia - Episode 3

    Tue Nov 24, 2020 8:54 am

    Hello everyone!

    Tonight at 8:30pm on SBS the third episode of Addicted Australia will be airing. Last week we got to know a little bit more about each participant, some of their families and their experiences through different types of addiction. The episodes have opened the door to allow us to see what wrap around treatment and support looks like.

    For some people you may have similar experiences to the participants on the documentary and although this can be relatable and helpful, some may find this triggering. If you find yourself feeling triggered by any content on the documentary, take a short break to ground yourself and we can also help support you on on the forums .

    After you have viewed the next episode be sure to come back onto the forums as we will have @Iamlucas000 once again, whom is a participant on the documentary to answer some of your questions around gambling addiction. @Iamlucas000 has kindly volunteered to be a part of the discussion with you all :D

    Take note of any themes you feel are important to focus on and any questions you may have throughout.

    Also if you have missed last weeks episode you can view it on the SBS website or app.

    Let us know how you're finding the documentary :);

    Hi Everyone :)

    What did we all think of episode 3 of Addicted Australia?
    During this episode it really put an emphasis on the challenging parts of the treatment process and how participants were coping with it.
    For those who have watched it, you can see each participants own journey throughout, their achievements and challenges they have faced.
    There was also a conversation between the participants around where addiction comes from and whether it is hereditary. What were your thoughts on this?

    We are very privileged to have a participant on the documentary @Iamlucas000 back online once again to answer any questions you may have for him :)

    Hey everyone, just advised that Lucas has had something come up and couldn't get here tonight. Happy for everyone to post any comments about the show in general though.
