Adfam for Families
People with a drug user or drinker in the family often take months and even years to look for help. Adfam provides a place where families can take that first step and find information about where to get the expert support and advice they need.

Our partner organisation The Icarus Trust provide a 'Family & Friends' information support service - get help online.
