Are you over 55 and affected by a loved one’s substance use?
Adfam facilitates a peer support group for older carers affected by someone else’s drug or alcohol use which meets monthly near Old Street. People offer one another practical and emotional advice, help and support in a friendly and non-judgmental environment, and some sessions are led by a professional counsellor.
There are also quarterly outings and social activities to give older carers a chance to relax and take some time for themselves. Newcomers are always welcome!
Adfam has also recently published a resource which brings together their experiences of working with this vulnerable group: Entitled “No one judges you here” voices of older people affected by a loved one’s substance use you can download the report here.
