What We Do
We provide a seven day a week lifeline of safe, caring and professional support to families, friends, partners and significant others who are struggling to cope with the nightmare of a loved one’s addiction to drugs, alcohol or gambling. We also support those bereaved by drugs, alcohol, gambling and related causes.
Through our range of services, which also include education and awareness, we support families to break free from the cycle of addiction and rebuild their lives. We are dedicated to what we do because we know it makes a difference.
Thank you for finding us, we are here for you.

It is hard to put into words what a difference DrugFAM has made in my life and I am so grateful to Elizabeth and her team for all their kindness and support. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
I wanted to say a huge thank you for your lovely welcome last night: I nearly turned back so thank you. I felt better when I left and I don’t know why. Finally I feel less alone.
It really helped speaking to you yesterday and I feel like a big weight has been lifted today. Thank you for listening and for your understanding. It's great to know the helpline is there for support whenever I need it. I honestly don't know what I would have done without it.
DrugFAM really are a lifeline - it's so huge .... what you do for me. I know no one else I can talk to and the situation at home is even more difficult to cope with due to the lockdown.
Thank you so much for your email and all the helpful links.
Thank you so much for genuinely listening to me and helping massively.
