Adfam - families, drugs & alcohol
Find your local support group on our website: http://adfam.org.uk/families/find_a_local_support_group
We want anyone affected by someone else’s drug or alcohol use to have the chance to benefit from healthy relationships, be part of a loving and supportive family and enjoy mental and physical wellbeing.
What we value
We listen to families and frontline workers - we know that people who face challenges often also have answers. So what we do is informed by our supporters: using compassion and evidence we inform, support and empower both people affected by a loved one’s substance misuse and the workers who support them. We build skills, resources, confidence and pathways so both groups can help themselves, their peers, clients and communities.
We work with :
Families, friends and carers
We inform and empower those affected by another’s substance use, and amplify their voices to ensure they have a stake in the issues that affect them.
We build the confidence, capacity and capability of practitioners to ensure the support they deliver is effective and appropriate.
We engage and influence key national and local decision-makers to shape policy and ensure they understand the issues the families we work with face every day.
