Adfam’s mission is to improve life for families affected by drugs, alcohol and gambling. A key strand of this is building the confidence, capacity and capability of frontline practitioners. To achieve this, we have for many years delivered specialist practitioner training on families and substance use.
Over the past year our experienced and talented trainers have refreshed and revised our wide range courses and are now all suitable to be delivered and facilitated online, over Zoom.
In addition to commissioned courses, we run ‘open courses’ for individual practitioners and professionals to register.
Most of our courses are CPD accredited, and participants will receive a CPD certificate following completion of the course.
Who is the training for?
Our training courses are suitable to any professional or volunteer whose work brings them into contact with families affected by substance use.
Please see the training calendar below for information on our latest online open courses on offer.

This one-day training course will give professionals the skills to help adult family members to engage more effectively with change resistant drinkers within their family. Adfam’s Blue Light Family toolkit provides a range of resources that support family members to engage appropriately and effectively with their loved ones. By the end of the training learners will:
- Understand the need for a greater focus on the family of change resistant drinkers
- Use and understand the tools in the toolkit
- Understand the range of local alcohol / family services
- Consider how to develop the local response to families of drinkers using these tools
