Support for others
It can be tough when your loved one has a problem with drugs or alcohol but you're not alone. We have family and carers groups where you can find out more about addiction, share your feelings and learn how to build a healthier relationship with your loved one.
Your first visit
When you visit the service for the first time, a member of staff will greet you in reception. They will help you to sign in and talk you through what will happen next. We have tea, coffee and water available. There's also information on other support services that you can take home with you. Please don't hesitate to ask at reception if you have any questions.
Everyone in recovery has their little tricks or things that work for them, and for me it’s knowing that I can always go back to drinking again if I want to. That might sound strange, but it means that I’m making a choice
–that I have a choice –and that I am in control of myself and my future. For me, that’s reallyimportant. ”
