Adfam’s mission is to improve life for families affected by drugs and alcohol. 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 recent years our experienced and talented trainers have refreshed and revised our wide range courses which are now delivered and facilitated online, over Zoom.

As well as commissioned courses our ‘open courses’ are available for individual practitioners and professionals to register.

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.
