'The Other Faces of Addiction'

The 30 portraits in our 'The Other Faces of Addiction' exhibition

'The Other Faces of Addiction' exhibition took place in October 2014 to mark our 30th birthday. 30 family members around the country whose lives have been touched by drug or alcohol use had been photographed, and the portraits exhibited. The images were then launched in the House of Lords later in the month, to raise awareness amongst parliamentarians of the stigma faced by families. 

In March 2015, the exhibition went to Parliament again, with a week's long exhibition, this time, in the House of Commons. Meg Hillier, Adfam's local MP, came along to say a few kind words about Adfam and the work we do to help improve families' quality of life.

Travelling exhibition

The exhibition was so warmly received, and the images such a success, that we decided to send 50 copies of the photos local support groups, to hold their own exhibitions of 'The Other Faces of Addiction.' Between October 2014 and June 2015, over 20 exhibitions were held throughout the country, with hundreds of attendees.

Feedback from the events was highly positive, and we would like to say a huge thank you to all of you who put in so much hard work to organise these excellent events!
