The Family, Friends and Carer Service aims to provide support to the families, friends, and carers of people who misuse drugs and/or alcohol in the Luton area. We provide information, advice, and psycho-educative support to anyone who is concerned or affected by somebody else’s drug and alcohol use.
You do not have to be a registered carer to refer, and the person who misuses drugs or alcohol 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 partnership agencies.
The sessions will be held in Farley Hill Community Centre, Stepping Stones, and The ResoLUTiONs Hub on Castle Street. There is also a Family, Friends, and Carers group on Wednesdays 18:00 – 19:30, and Mondays 12.30 – 13:30 at The ResoLUTiONs Hub.
