The national charity organisation Adfam is devoted to changing the lives of families affected by drugs and alcohol. We strive to give anyone affected by a family member's addiction the opportunity to get the benefit from supportive and healthy relationships, feel involved within a loving family and maintain a healthy mental as well as physical wellbeing.
Drug and alcohol usage encourages physical, emotional and financial imbalances which can destroy family relationships.
We allow members of the family and close friends to help our personnel and influence decision-makers to make the right choices to prevent this from happening.
What We Appreciate
We give families and frontline workers their voice As we know that individuals have answers if they have face or confront challenges. Our supporters informed what we do: We support and empower both people affected by substance misuse and the workers who support them with the evidence and compassion with us. We develop abilities, resources, trust and pathways so both groups can assist themselves, their friends, clients and communities.
