Adfam is a national charity dedicated to helping families that suffer from drug and alcohol abuse issues. Be part of a loving and supportive family to enjoy physical and mental wellbeing because we want everyone affected by someone else's drug or alcohol use to have the chance to benefit from these healthy relationships.
The use of drugs and alcohol can ultimately destroy a family's wellbeing and the relationships within it.
We stop these incidents happening by enabling family members as well as support workers to influence the addict's decision-making.

We listen to frontline workers and families We understand that people who face challenges usually have answers . So, we use compassion and evidence to inform, encourage and empower persons influenced by a loved one's substance abuse as well as the workers who help them. Capacity building, through making resources available to learn productive skills and instil confidence on individual's potential for productivity.
We're Driven By What Works
Substance abuse has a diverse and intense effect on family relations and happiness. We focus on things that give results in reality and we do our work seriously and carefully. We accept evidence regardless of how different it might be, paying equal attention to both practical evidence and official research data in order to do this. We listen to our peers, supporters and friends and we base our work on their advice.
We're Not Kidding About Our Main Goal
We are committed to deliver high quality work because we are serious about our work and our partnerships.

We are going to fight until society accepts drug and alcohol addicts and their families without shaming them.
