Accessing support provides families with the chance to cope with and recover from the effects of someone else’s addiction, which can then help to build a strong support structure essential for the drug users recovery - its a family affair.
Spoda have been providing services to families and carers who live within the county of Derbyshire since 1998.
We have been and remain one of the pioneers in developing services to address the wide range of issues facing families and carers affected by another person’s substance use.
Having someone you care about who uses substances can create many problems for families and carers. The stigma and shame associated with substance use often means families and carers suffer in silence creating severe isolation, which can then result in depression and associated health problems for the people affected by the other person’s substance use. To find out that someone you care about is using substances can leave you floundering in a tidal wave of emotions, such as denial, anger, shame, frustration, fear and sheer bewilderment. An addict’s illness and pain spreads out to encompass parents, partners, children, siblings and friends.
At Spoda we can offer you empathy and understanding; we are non-judgemental and can offer you a safe and confidential environment to discuss your situation. We can support you in your own right or offer support to assist you to help the person you care about who uses substances.
