DrugFAM is proud to offer Forces Family Support, a service dedicated to supporting members of Armed Forces communities affected by a loved one’s harmful use of alcohol, drugs, or gambling. Forces Family Support provides confidential support to veterans, reservists and those currently serving in the Armed Forces and their families, carers, colleagues and friends who are affected by a loved one’s addiction. The services address the emotional and practical challenges faced by these communities.
