Charity registered in Scotland SC034737
Scottish Families Affected by Alcohol and Drugs is a national charity supporting anyone concerned about a loved one’s alcohol or drug use. We were set up by families themselves in 2003, who came together to support each other and campaign for recognition. Every person with an issue around substances has a family and in many cases it is their family who is their main source of support. Despite the vital support that families provide for their loved ones, families often don’t know where to turn for support for themselves and can struggle with emotional and financial pressures. Problems with alcohol and drugs exist across all walks of life but there remains a huge stigma which prevents families from seeking help. We work with these families providing listening and emotional support, signposting and dedicated services such as our one-to-one support over the phone, family support groups or our bereavement service.
