The national charity organisation Adfam is devoted to changing the lives of families affected by drugs and alcohol. Be part of a loving and supportive family to enjoy physical and mental wellbeing because we want everyone affected by someone else's drug or alcohol use to have the chance to benefit from these healthy relationships.
Alcohol and drug abuse can endanger and eventually ruin family relations and harmony.
To prevent this from happening, we encourage family members and caretakers, reassure frontline workers and impact those that make decisions.
Our Core Values
We listen to frontline workers and families We understand that people who face challenges usually have answers . But it's not only support; this program informs and educates family members over devastating effects and how to take a stand in support of drug and alcohol addiction reduction in homes and workplace. We aim to provide both groups with resources, knowledge, belief and ways to help themselves, their communities, customers and peers.
We Are Inspired By What Works
Our aim is to improve health and happiness decisions in family set up, work place and social gatherings. This is the secret behind our dynamic approach to drug and alcohol abuse. We accept evidence regardless of how different it might be, paying equal attention to both practical evidence and official research data in order to do this. We listen to our peers, supporters and friends and we base our work on their advice.
We Take Our Goal Seriously
We are dedicated to providing the work of the best standard as we are serious about our job and partnerships. We are treating people and families influenced by substance abuse with dignity and respect, as we don't agree with the public opinion including stigma and prejudice, as those only cause pain and obstacles on the path of recovery. We desire a stigma-free society towards substance abusers and their close ones, and we won't stop until we accomplish this.
