Our Family and Carers Groups were set up to provide information and support to family and/or friends of those affected by substance misuse. This group of people is often forgotten by providers, whose main focus is the individual in crisis.
The impact on families and friends is often increased by their lack of understanding and information. These group session will provide the opportunity to talk with others who are empathic to their situation and can provide clear information on the impact of substance misuse of the one that they care for.
Family and friends have a critical role to play in helping those they care for in beating their addiction.
If you worried or anxious about anything to do with drugs or alcohol, whether its for yourself, a friend or family member then do not hesitate to contact SMART who have skilled professionals on hand to provide information, advice and support.
