Substance misuse

Who do we support?

Are you affected by someone else’s drinking or drug use? If so, you are a carer and we can offer support to you. We offer support to anyone who is affected by substance misuse. This includes parents, partners, children, siblings, grandparents and friends.

Please note that our regular monthly face to face support group is suspended until further notice, and from May we will be offering a virtual support group which is open to any carers affected by someone else’s substance misuse. For more details see here 

Or please contact us on 01904 715490 or email
