The main objective of DrugFAM is to give the guarantee to those families who are suffering from the effects of other people's drug and alcohol use that they are perceived, informed and assisted. Our approach in dealing with the challenging situation of hard drug or alcohol use includes family members, friends, caregivers as well as local and national support awareness creation.
DrugFAM provide support groups and those who attend our groups tell us they find the groups supportive in dealing with their family situation and with what they receive from our trained facilitators and other attendees. We at DrugFAM also offer a lot more types of activities that can help the physical and emotional health of individuals, but also can provide assistance to families with problems.
DrugFAM special interest is to safeguard children and helpless adults from exposure to substance abuse.
We will discuss with you and identify a way to take you forward if you disclose information which we believe gives us grounds for concern about a child or adult's welfare. Disclosing these facts with appropriate agencies is one of them.
DrugFAM offer help and support groups and welcome the feedback that they receive from attendees in regards to the trained facilitators and other people who are dealing with the same problem.
In 2007, we made our first support group in High Wycombe, we are developing more groups in 8 different areas.
Theatre In Education
DrugFAM believes in the potential of theatre as an entertainment package to attract target audience attention, hold their interest in passing vital drug abuse message and its effect on individual and family members. Through performances of the play 'Mum, can you lend me twenty quid? What drugs did to my family' is one of the most effective ways we have to do this.
This is offered to persons unable to attend support groups or counselling because of disability or some different personal reasons. DrugFAM has set aside two persons to meet and spend time discussing substance abuse and its effects as well as create awareness with disabled persons with prior special arrangement. This is offered only to persons who have lost someone to addiction or those with an addict in their family.
One To One Support
This arrangement provides the opportunity for new family member support group to discover how other support groups manage and handle respective cases substance abuse. Individual support group members have the opportunity to ask and share specific substance abuse concerns with the facilitator in private or public during these meetings is another added advantage achieved in these meetings.
Outside and alongside the group, this is not an ongoing relationship.
DrugFAM provides you 6 roads of support for individuals who have lost somebody through this addiction.
