Adfam for Families

People with a drug user or drinker in the family often take months and even years to look for help. Adfam provides a place where families can take that first step and find information about where to get the expert support and advice they need.

It was such a relief to talk to someone who was sympathetic to my situation and who didn't judge me for having the feelings I had. Talking to someone about how I was feeling gave me the strength to cope with things better.

Why not share your story or read about other's experiences on our blog? Or if you're looking for advice or support, you could read the what should I do section of our site or search for a local support group using our map.

Our partner organisation The Icarus Trust provide a 'Family & Friends' information support service - get help online.

It's annoying that if our kids need something we have to save because he hasn't got the money to pay all in one go but dealers get £100s in one go.
