The national charity organisation Adfam is devoted to changing the lives of families affected by drugs and alcohol. Be part of a loving and supportive family to enjoy physical and mental wellbeing because we want everyone affected by someone else's drug or alcohol use to have the chance to benefit from these healthy relationships.
Alcohol and drug abuse can endanger and eventually ruin family relations and harmony.
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 . We get informed by our supporters: with the help of sympathy and confirmation we advice, engage, and help both the individuals who are influenced by a friend or family member's drug abuse and those who support them. We develop abilities, resources, trust and pathways so both groups can assist themselves, their friends, clients and communities.
We Are Inspired By What Works
Our aim is to improve health and happiness decisions in family set up, work place and social gatherings. This is the secret behind our dynamic approach to drug and alcohol abuse. To achieve this, we never underestimate the value of real-life experience as well as formal research evidence and we also embrace evidence in all diversity. Our work is driven by our supporters, colleagues, friends and what they see.
We're Serious About Our Mission
Our overall objective is driven by commitment and partnering with organisations which share similar sentiments towards addiction rehabilitation. 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
Careers, friends and families - In order to ensure those affected by another's substance use have a stake in the issue that affect them, we inform and empower them and also amplify their voices.
Frontline workers - We seek to build individual confidence to take control to support family and work mates in a common goal.
Decision-makers- We make sure that main local and national decision-makers know the problems that families deal with on a daily basis and we try to engage with them and affect their decisions.
