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.

I miss my mum, some days its all I think about...why? Why did you do it? Why didn't you stop what you were doing? Why didn't you get more help? It seems easier to question these things now when you are much older but back then I was too young to grasp the situation... Unfortunately I'm left with memories I can't shake, the times when you change from being a mum to being a stranger who wouldnt thin… read the full post
