About Family Drug Support

Family Drug Support was formed in 1997 after it's founder Tony Trimingham lost his son to a heroin overdose. Bereft, Tony felt frustrated by the general apathy and ignorance of his own experience.

This was also the plight of many other families. Realising this was but the tip of the iceberg, a public meeting was called where hundreds of people attended.

Walking a Tightrope

Alcohol and other drug use and violence: A guide for families
 
Alcohol and other drug use and family violence often occur together. Families already coping with a family member who uses alcohol and drugs can also be exposed to violent behaviours. Living with a family member who uses alcohol or other drugs and who is violent can be frightening. It can feel like walking a tightrope. Specialist support and medical attention may be helpful.
