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.

Why not share your story or read about other's experiences on our blog? Or if you're looking for advice or support, you could read the what should I do section of our site or search for a local support group using our map.
Our partner organisation The Icarus Trust provide a 'Family & Friends' information support service - get help online.

I am so tired and weary. My child has been on and off heroin for the last 12 years. Recently has been using daily again but is now seeking help (again!). I just don't know where to go from here. Sometimes I just want to walk away, but how can I leave, I may be the only friend they have. I somehow blame myself (although told time and time again it is not) and as I write this just want to collapse i… read the full post
