'Attempts at change may not always succeed but the key task is to stick together and keep talking,' Peter.

A Word From Our Professionals

You can talk to a professional: Making a decision to talk to a trained professional, whether they’re a counsellor, therapist, or perhaps your G.P, is really positive. You can also talk to our team for support for concerned others on 0800 638 443 or

You can talk to another family member or friend: It’s positive to seek out the support of people who are there for us and care about our problems. Letting friends and other family members know what you’re going through and how you are feeling will leave you feeling less isolated.

Also have a look at our 'Living Well' brochure for more information on how to care for yourself when faced with a loved one's addiction.
