The national charity organisation Adfam is devoted to changing the lives of families affected by drugs and alcohol. Be part of a loving and supportive family to enjoy physical and mental wellbeing because we want everyone affected by someone else's drug or alcohol use to have the chance to benefit from these healthy relationships.
The use of drugs and alcohol can ultimately destroy a family's wellbeing and the relationships within it.
We stop these incidents happening by enabling family members as well as support workers to influence the addict's decision-making.
We listen to frontline workers and families People who have experienced these type of problems most likely can provide some solutions. So, we use compassion and evidence to inform, encourage and empower persons influenced by a loved one's substance abuse as well as the workers who help them. So that both groups can help themselves, their peers, communities and clients, we build skills, confidence, pathways and resources.
The substance use impact on wellbeing and family relationships is both varied and profound. We access our work with close attention and care to what works in the real world. To achieve this, we never underestimate the value of real-life experience as well as formal research evidence and we also embrace evidence in all diversity. Our work is driven by our supporters, colleagues, friends and what they see.
Our overall objective is driven by commitment and partnering with organisations which share similar sentiments towards addiction rehabilitation. We are commit to treating families and individuals that suffer the consequences of substance abuse with consideration and honour because we understand that discrimination and disgrace are obstacles to recovery and cause damage. We are going to fight until society accepts drug and alcohol addicts and their families without shaming them.
