Founder of drug rehabilitation facility Shalom House, Peter Lyndon-James, is coming to Esperance for a seminar.

Mr Lyndon-James will hold a seminar at the Esperance Bay Turf Club on Saturday, March 30 from 1pm to 5pm, with afternoon tea provided.

Coordinator Rosie Lang said he first visited Esperance in 2017 when about 220 locals heard his 'tough love' approach to dealing with drug and alcohol addiction.

Ms Lang said the seminar was not only for those addicted, but also for families to learn to deal with relatives who were struggling with substance abuse. 

"His success rate is absolutely fantastic, so we're pretty happy that we've got him to come down," she said. 

Sponsorships from Florissons Home Furnishers, Esperance Bay Turf Club, Esperance Crisis Accommodation Service, Farm and General and Sealy funded the seminar.

Admission is free, although those who can are asked to make a donation at the door.

"If people can't afford it, they can't afford it. But it would be nice if they could donate as they go in the door because we will re-donate that to Shalom House," Ms Lang said. 

Those attending are asked to register for catering purposes by calling 0419 011 709 or emailing amanda@lyndonjames.com.au.
