In an effort to educate families and communities about tackling drug issues, the 'Tough Love' seminar is currently touring New Zealand.
Leading the presentation is Peter Lyndon-James, the founder and chief executive of Australia's largest self-funded rehabilitation centre - Shalom House.
He has first-hand experience with years of addictions as well as the recovery process and his presentations are aimed at equipping families with the tools to help their loved ones overcome addiction.
