For the parent that rang concerning the abducted teen. There is a group called Al-Anon that meet Fridays at 2pm at the uniting church in Bangalow. It is a support group for family members who have a relative who is dependent on drugs and/or alcohol. You can call them on 1300 252 666 or see the regular as clockwork community notices in the back of The Echo for a range of drug and alcohol support groups that run in the region.

Please attend one as you can get insights on how their minds work. It also gives you an understanding of the techniques used on how to get money out of relatives.

You could also ask your child if he is buying all the drugs for his friends.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
