Join FDS and support our efforts to help families and friends of people who use substances as well as bereaved families. Family support is a key factor in motivating people who use substances to control or reduce their drug use.
We recognise the vital role that families and friends play in helping people who use substances maintain good health and regain a normal life.
We help families by providing information and appropriate support through our telephone support line and the FDS INSIGHT
Family Drug Support have also produced a parent help and information kit entitled A GUIDE TO COPING
to aid parents, families, and friends of people who use substances. The kit was designed to fill the serious gap in the availability of information and support. This resource also provides help on how to deal with crisis situations such as overdose and up-to-date information on treatment options.
We believe that by helping families of people who use substances we are ultimately helping the person themselves. To achieve this we need your support. We mostly run on a volunteer basis with a small grant from the government. Therefore your subscription and/or donation will enable our organisation to continue its work.
