Adfam is the only national charity tackling the effects of alcohol, drug use or gambling on family members and friends.We want anyone affected by someone else's drug or alcohol use or gambling problem to have the chance to benefit from healthy relationships, be part of a loving and supportive family and enjoy mental and physical wellbeing.
We know that people who face challenges often also have answers. So what we do is informed by our supporters: using compassion and evidence we inform, support and empower both people affected by a loved one's drug or alcohol use or gambling and the workers who support them. We build skills, resources, confidence and pathways so both groups can help themselves, their peers, clients and communities.
We are serious about our work, and our partnerships, and committed to delivering them to the highest quality. We know that prejudice and stigma are barriers to recovery and cause harm, and we promise to treat individuals and families affected by drugs and alcohol with respect and dignity. We want to see a society free from stigma towards drug and alcohol users and those with a gambling problem as well as their families, and will fight until it exists.
