Support for Family Members and Friends

SIAS has family workers who specialise in support for family members or others who are concerned about someone’s drinking and/or drugs use or gambling.

We also aim to involve family members as much as possible in treatment plans.

We can offer:

  • Brief advice and information on what we can do to support the person who is drinking, gambling or using drugs
  • One-to-one sessions giving a space to explore how you are affected by the person’s substance misuse or gambling, and strategies for dealing with it
  • A family group which meets once a month throughout the year
  • Signposting to a range of other services.
