The Family, Friends and Carer Service aims to provide support to the families, friends, and carers of people who misuse alcohol and/or drugs in the Luton area. We provide information, advice, and psycho-educative support to anyone who is concerned or affected by somebody else’s alcohol and drug use.
You do not have to be a registered carer to refer, and the person who misuses alcohol or drugs does not have to be in treatment with us. We ensure that affected families and friends have access to a confidential platform to reflect on their own needs and well-being without fear of judgement.
We offer sessions on a 1-to-1 basis covering the five steps family intervention. If needed, we can also refer to our counselling service or to partner agencies.
The sessions are held at The ResoLUTiONs Recovery Hub on Castle Street.
There is also a Family, Friends, and Carers group on Wednesdays 18:00 – 19:30.
