The national charity organisation Adfam is devoted to changing the lives of families affected by drugs and alcohol. We strive to give anyone affected by a family member's addiction the opportunity to get the benefit from supportive and healthy relationships, feel involved within a loving family and maintain a healthy mental as well as physical wellbeing.
Family relations and happiness can be threatened and even shatter completely due to alcohol and drug abuse.
We stop these incidents happening by enabling family members as well as support workers to influence the addict's decision-making.
What We Value
We are glad to hear family members and frontline workers. We understand that people who face challenges usually have answers . But it's not only support; this program informs and educates family members over devastating effects and how to take a stand in support of drug and alcohol addiction reduction in homes and workplace. We develop abilities, resources, trust and pathways so both groups can assist themselves, their friends, clients and communities.
We Are Inspired By What Works
The substance use impact on wellbeing and family relationships is both varied and profound. We access our work with close attention and care to what works in the real world. We accept evidence regardless of how different it might be, paying equal attention to both practical evidence and official research data in order to do this. We listen to our peers, supporters and friends and we base our work on their advice.
We're Not Kidding About Our Main Goal
We focus on providing the best quality of work to our clients as we are not kidding about our work and our organisation. We are commit to treating families and individuals that suffer the consequences of substance abuse with consideration and honour because we understand that discrimination and disgrace are obstacles to recovery and cause damage. We are going to fight until society accepts drug and alcohol addicts and their families without shaming them.
With Whom Do We Work
Family members, friends and carers - We support persons influenced by another's drug or alcohol abuse, and help them to make sure that they have a stake in the problems that affect them.
Frontline workers- To make sure the support we deliver is effective and appropriate, we build confidence, capacity and capability of practitioners.
