Friends and family
Improving the quality of family life and relationships is at the heart of all of Addaction’s services. If a loved one has problems with drugs or alcohol or is experiencing mental health difficulties then we are here for you.
About one in five of us have a family member with a drug or alcohol problem. As well as causing us major concern, it can also have a negative impact on our family's health, wellbeing, finances, social lives and relationships with others.
We know how difficult that can be. So we run a number of specialist services aimed specifically at families and carers that help them to understand and cope with a loved one's addiction. We also know that if families get support in their own right, it is more likely that the people they care about will beat their problems.
