Family Support Service
Dealing with a loved ones’ drug or alcohol use can be very distressing. We understand how much this can affect all family members and so we offer support to all members of the family.
Many people want to know what to do to help their family member and we can give lots of information around drugs and help available.
Our main aim is to work with family members to build up their own resilience. EDIT uses the 5 Step Method which has shown a reduction in the strain experienced by family members when a relative has developed a serious drug or alcohol problem.
There are huge benefits in supporting family members as evidence has shown that there can be a knock on effect for the coping skills of other family members and this can lead to positive change in the drug/alcohol using person.
All of the staff team have been trained by the National Family Support Network and are all accredited.
If you or another family member would like support then please contact Cecilia our Family Support Worker and she can chat to you about supports available.
