Supporting Families and Friends!
The devastating impacts of an addiction don’t stop at the person who is affected.
Close family and friends often find themselves sharing the rollercoaster ride of emotions that go with any attempts to support or assist, from confusion and hopelessness to desperation.
We fully understand the impact that alcohol and drugs can have on families.
Our dedicated team empower many families to overcome their challenges by listening, responding and referring to other organisations that may also bring them a circle of care where it is deferred or non existent.
If you would like to talk to one of our team to get help, or for advice about how another person can get the assistance they need, please contact us.
