The Ararat Local Drug Action Team is hosting a Talking Tactics Together program at Alexandra Oval Community Centre on Monday, October 14 and 21.
Students, parents and people seeking more information are invited to attend to talk through issues and best tactics about alcohol or drug use.
Talking Tactics Together is an informative and interactive program for families and students that aims to increase understanding about drugs and related issues, improve communication, build up positive role modelling and build student resilience.
It promotes a program for anyone seeking information and help for themselves or another person's alcohol or drug use, you're not alone.
The Local Drug Action Team is managed by the Alcohol and Drug Foundation and is a partnership which includes Grampians Community Health, Victoria Police and Ararat Rural City Council.
It supports organisations to build or extend partnerships within the community and to use knowledge from the region to deliver activities that are designed to the area.
The Alcohol and Drug Foundation's chief executive Dr Erin Lalor said the Local Drug Action Team would play a vital role in building a healthy community.
"Supporting communities to be at the heart of the solution is critical if we are to address alcohol and other drug-related harm," Dr Lalor said.
