Are you affected by someone’s substance misuse?

Are you affected by a friend, family member or loved one’s drug or alcohol use? 

The burden of coping with someone else’s problem substance misuse can be tiring, stressful, anxiety provoking at times and most of all it can be an isolating experience. I support individuals, in a quiet, calm space. Offering advice, information about drugs and alcohol, identify ways to manage boundaries, improve coping skills, and making time for you in your life and explore better ways to take care of yourself. This is an area that is often hidden and not fully acknowledged for the support needed. It can have a devastating impact on a person’s mental and physical wellbeing. 

   You have no control over their substance misuse. You cannot cure it. It is not your fault.
