Our counsellors can provide education and support for families to best help understand addiction. Both you and your family need support. We are always here to answer any questions you may have.
There are many organisations that are set up to help families understand addiction and we have provided a list of them below.
You can search online for local organisations that are for families of addicted people. There are support groups that you can attend with other families that are going through the same problems. The great thing about support groups is that you suddenly realise that you are not alone and you can finally be in a safe environment to be able to talk and share your emotions.
Families normally try to deal with addiction in isolation because the feelings of guilt and shame keep them from reaching out. Support groups will be facilitated by an experienced addiction professional to help you process your emotions and feelings.
