Brady Chapman started this petition to Federal member for Wide Bay MP

Hey my name is Brady Chapman,

I believe the Fraser Coast needs a government funded detox center and a live in drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility. Preferably for Maryborough as its reasonably central in the Wide Bay Burnett and surrounding regional towns can benefit. (approx 300 000 people live in the Wide Bay Burnett area)

Hervey Bay does have Bayside transformations which is a non government funded live in rehab but no prior admission detox available. Although it is a christian run rehab where prayer and church is mandatory. As our community is becoming more multicultural and we have a lot of different religions and cultures surrounding us we need a mutual rehab to accommodate all types of people with different beliefs. (I mean no absolute disrespect to Christianity by that comment.)

Myself personally has been over the years a heavy alcoholic, using illicit drugs, abusing various prescription medications on a regular basis. On reaching out it has come to my attention that the closest government funded rehab is Najara (Sunshine Coast) and prior to being accepted into a live in rehab requires generally a 7-10 day Detox. The closest detox center being Brisbane. Not to mention the long waiting periods as there in high demand and private rehabs are to expensive.

I have been alcohol, tobacco, illicit drug free and regularly exercising, living a clean lifestyle. I have made this a personal goal to bring awareness to our community on the topics of Mental Health and Substance Abuse issues. I have sent various emails to local council, members of parliament.

This petition is purely to help others as i was once in there position and to help rather then judge. We all know someone whether it be family or a friend dealing with addiction.

I need your support by signing this petition to be sent of to our Federal member of parliament to take action! 

Thank you for taking the time to read!
