Are you affected by someone else’s drinking and/or drug use?

Are you aware that you can get help and support in your own right regardless of whether the person you care about is ready to change or not?

There are a number of services in place across the region who can offer you information, advice and/or one to one support to help you understand how you are being impacted by someone else’s drinking and/or drug use and to reduce the stress and strain on yourself.

steps-to-cope

Whilst this initiative is aimed at adult family members affected by someone else’s drinking and/or drug use we recognise that young people may also see the clips and think where can I get support and so we have detailed some options below.

If you are a young person (aged 11 to 18) affected by your mum or dad’s drinking behaviour contact Steps 2 Cope for information, advice and support (self-help and/or face to face contact) – the service is available across Northern Ireland.

Tel: 0800 254 5123

Are you a young carer?

If you are a young carer, or think that you might be classed as a young carer, we would encourage you to visit www.nidirect.gov.uk/articles/young-carers to find out more about sources of help, advice and support.

There are also specialist services for children affected by parental substance misuse (Hidden Harm) available across Northern Ireland and these can be accessed via a referral being made by your local Social Services department/team.
