We have a family support service for people impacted by a loved one’s substance misuse.

Our team of Family Coaches, with their own lived experience, will provide support and information for those who have been affected by someone’s drug or alcohol use. 

What we offer

Our Family Support Service offers a wide range of support and activities which aim to help those affected to:

  • Develop and access peer to peer support
  • Build a toolkit to help with resilience and wellbeing
  • Feel confident and informed of decisions and choices made in relation to their situation 
  • Develop a basic understanding of addiction and appropriate education around drugs and alcohol
  • Look at hopes and wishes for the future
  • Keep safe 

Accessing the service

This service is available to anyone living within Lancashire (excluding Blackburn and Blackpool), even if the person you are concerned about is not accessing support or treatment for their drug or alcohol use. We accept referrals from anyone including family members, professionals or direct from the client themselves. You can contact us by email or phone:
