For Family and Friends

                     Is the addictive behaviour of a family member impacting you?

      Do you?
  • get worried, frustrated, angry or sad about someone you know who uses alcohol, drugs, gambling, or other worrying behaviours?
  • struggle to know how to help them, or find yourself saying the same things to them over and over?
  • do your best to support the person experiencing addiction, but sometimes feel whatever you do or say isn't helping?
  • feel worried or down a lot of the time?
  • feel you don't have enough time to look after yourself, or important parts of your life such as work, and other relationships?
  • have trouble sleeping, or find it hard to concentrate?
