Our Aims


We seek to support our members


To Understand

The problems their loved ones face when trying to come to terms with their addiction to drugs / alcohol


To Gain Strength

To be able to keep boundaries and concentrate on their own lives.  To stop 'enabling'


To be Kind to Ourselves

By interacting with others who are in a similar situation, members support each other to concentrate on their own mental and physical health


To Accept

They cannot change their loved ones' choices and behaviours:  they can only change their own attitude and learn to accept their situation.


Carers' Charter

  • I will NOT support or assist you in any form of addictive behaviour
  • That includes alcohol and drugs
  • I WILL, however, support you in being free of those things
  • I will NOT tolerate you being aggressive, disrespectful, insulting or controlling
  • I WILL, however, support you in any attempt to make yourself healthy, well and fulfilling the potential you have to do positive and wonderful things
