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.
