More Details:

Wesley Hospital Kogarah and Wesley Hospital Ashfield are sponsoring a free information evening in Sydney to help the community better understand the causes and treatment for addictions. It is also an ideal opportunity for emergency service workers, health and allied health professionals to gain insights.

Leading Consultant Physician in Internal Medicine and Addiction Medicine and World Health Organisation expert Professor John Saunders will be the keynote speaker discussing common addictions and addictive disorders. He will also interview a person who has a ‘lived experience’ of addiction so members of the audience will gain a first-hand understanding of addiction.

The presentations will be followed by an audience question and answer session. Attendees will also be able to meet key members of Wesley Hospital Ashfield and Kogarah and receive information about the programs they run for persons with addictions. Wesley Hospital Kogarah and Wesley Hospital Ashfield specialise in a range of mental health areas including addictions recovery, mood disorders, anxiety and depression.

Bookings are essential: contact Carla Liesch (02) 9275 2853 or

Parking is available at Wilson Parking, located on the corner of Elizabeth Street and Goulburn Street.
