Drug and Alcohol Services - Camden
How we can help
We can help family members, partners, or friends to regain control over their own life, whether the person using drugs or alcohol is receiving help or not.
A person's drug or alcohol use has a big impact on people close to them. Family members and friends can find that their own health and wellbeing are affected. They may find themselves feeling responsible, but unsure how to help. Some Space offers practical information and support.
We can also help you talk through and plan for yourself and loved ones who may be at risk of harm.
- It is important that people get medical advice and care to reduce gradually and stop. Read our advice about cutting down or stopping drinking.
- Opiate replacement medications like methadone can be highly toxic, even in very small doses, for children. Get in touch (Link to contact us section of the page) for safe medication storage boxes.
- Naloxone is a drug that can reverse an overdose. We can train and provide you a kit so you can protect your loved ones at risk of an overdose. Read more about naloxone here.
If you’d like to get in touch to ask any questions or find out more about what we have to offer, please do get in touch.

We support family members, friends, and partners of those who use substances. Our service bridges the divide between them. Often there is one shared problem that we address holistically.
Any person affected by someone else’s substance use – at present and in the past – can be referred to our service. To refer someone to our service, please complete our referral form.
Some Space can provide workshops for staff teams, volunteers, and others in the borough of Camden who may interact with family members, friends, and carers.
Contact us for more information by calling 020 7485 2722.
