The national charity organisation Adfam is devoted to changing the lives of families affected by drugs and alcohol. At Adfam we want anyone affected by a family members addiction to drugs or alcohol to be able to benefit from healthy relationships as well as feel part of a loving and supportive family whilst enjoying mental and physical wellbeing.
Family relations and happiness can be threatened and even shatter completely due to alcohol and drug abuse.
We stop these incidents happening by enabling family members as well as support workers to influence the addict's decision-making.
What We Care About
We listen to families and workers in order to help We understand that people who face challenges usually have answers . We get informed by our supporters: with the help of sympathy and confirmation we advice, engage, and help both the individuals who are influenced by a friend or family member's drug abuse and those who support them. So that both groups can help themselves, their peers, communities and clients, we build skills, confidence, pathways and resources.
We Are Inspired By What Works
Substance abuse has a diverse and intense effect on family relations and happiness. We focus on things that give results in reality and we do our work seriously and carefully. To achieve this, we never underestimate the value of real-life experience as well as formal research evidence and we also embrace evidence in all diversity. Our work is driven by our supporters, colleagues, friends and what they see.
We're Serious About Our Mission
Our overall objective is driven by commitment and partnering with organisations which share similar sentiments towards addiction rehabilitation.
