Care, support and information for families and friends...
We provide individual 1-2-1 private and confidential support for family members who are affected by substance misuse issues.
We understand the stigma, isolation and possibly the guilt that family members can carry associated with drug and alcohol addiction in the family and we know it's so difficult to open up and talk to anyone about the problems you are facing.
We have been providing family member 1-2-1 support for many years and we understand what is required to make a difference and enable the changes in behaviour required, both in the person with the addiction problem and the family member's approach in order to progress recovery for the family.
Our 1-2-1 private and confidential individual family support sessions are with experienced staff members who also have their own personal experience of coping with family members in addiction and supporting them through into recovery.
Whether your loved one is still in active addiction and denial, or they have started to accept there is a problem, our dedicated 1-2-1 family sessions will support you to explore your own circumstances in a safe and confidential environment. We can then look at how best we can support and guide your loved one together.
Our sessions will help you address any questions about addiction, the behaviours of someone in addiction, identify the best and most effective treatment available for your loved one and ultimately support you through the whole process in a safe and confidential environment.
Recovery is all about change, so while your loved one is going through that process of change and recovery we believe it’s essential that the families are also supported.
"When a family member or friend is able and confident to provide the correct support and encouragement to an addict or alcoholic it can have a significant and incredible effect in assisting them in their recovery."
