Are you worried about someone?

Are you worried about someone?

Are you worried that someone you know is using drugs or drinking more alcohol than is good for them? We know that this can be very difficult to cope with.

You can’t be responsible for others but one of the most important things you can do for people who are using drugs is to help them get into drug treatment. As well as helping your friend or relative, you might need some help and support yourself. There are a number of services in the county that can offer advice and information. Some also offer a dedicated programme for relatives, partners and carers, for example counselling and complementary therapies.

Alcohol and drug use doesn’t just affect the person who’s using them: it can have a major impact on their families and friends.
