When someone is experiencing a difficult time or are in recovery, they may receive support from a range of people such as their GP, mental health professionals, social workers, recovery support workers etc. However, it is important to remember the support they receive closer to home - their families, friends and other loved ones - the unsung heroes that help us all on a daily basis!

As well as helping our clients, we realise that other people are affected by someone's addictive behaviour, so we also provide advice and support to loved ones too. Here is a testimonial from a member of one of our family support groups:

"Thanks for inviting us to the family group yesterday. It was really useful. Though people are having tough times there’s a strength and comfort for us in feeling we aren’t alone, and lots of useful examples of how others are coping and supporting their loved ones in really difficult circumstances."

It is 'Hidden Heroes' day today and we'd love you to share your stories and recognise those who have helped you out - please drop them below, or if you'd prefer to remain anonymous, send a private message to the page and I'll post them anonymously.
