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.
Alcohol and drug abuse can endanger and eventually ruin family relations and harmony.
We allow members of the family and close friends to help our personnel and influence decision-makers to make the right choices to prevent this from happening.
What We Care About
We listen to frontline workers and families We understand that people who are facing difficulties often have answers. So, thanks to our supporters we plan a course of action: using empathy and proofs we notify, encourage and empower both workers that cooperate with those that suffer from a substance abuse of family members, as well as those family members. We aim to provide both groups with resources, knowledge, belief and ways to help themselves, their communities, customers and peers.
We're Driven By What Works
Substance use has a very significant but varied effect on family members. Our approach of work with care and close regard which works in the whole world. To accomplish all of this, we gladly accept different kinds of evidence, and we lean on real life experiences as well as formal scientific facts. Our work is inspired by our families, friends, supporters and co-workers and what they tell us works.
We're Not Kidding About Our Main Goal
We are committed to deliver high quality work because we are serious about our work and our 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.
