Addiction is a family illness, and it affects more than just the individual struggling. 1.5 million adults in the UK are significantly affected by relatives’ drug use, costing an estimated £1.8 billion/year. We’re here to support those affected, not just those directly battling addiction.
Did you know that nearly 1.5 million adults in the UK will be significantly affected by relatives' drug use? And the cost of the harms they experience as a result amounts to about £1.8 billion per year, according to the UK Drug Policy Commission.
Addiction is a family illness, and we're here to help not just those directly affected by addiction, but their families too. We understand that families suffer greatly, often not knowing where to turn or how to help a loved one.
Often, family members will have no idea what they're dealing with and can feel embarrassed or ashamed to ask for help. But there's no need to deal with this alone.
Support is available. Whether it's one-to-one therapy or group therapy with another family who's been through something similar, we aim to move families into recovery as a whole, so everyone can heal together.
Don't be ashamed or embarrassed to reach out.
We're here to help.
