Report launch: Substance misuse: through the lens of the family

During Families Awareness Week, Adfam in collaboration with ten other organisations that support families, launched 'Substance Misuse: Through The Lens of The Family' (pdf).

This report looks at how the government's Drug Strategy, released earlier this year, could adopt a more family-focused approach, and examines some of the different elements a drug strategy might include if considered through the lens of the family.

At Tuesday's online launch event, we were joined by Philip Breslin, the report's author, and Jo Huey who spoke powerfully about her own lived experience as an affected family member. A recording of this event will be made available soon.

Our online petition which you can sign here reinforces this approach by calling for greater support for families.
