This service is for you if:

  • your family lives in, or have a connection to, Islington with children under 18
  • you're a parent, child and young person who is concerned about someone else's drug or alcohol use and would like to talk to someone
  • you're an adult affected by someone else’s drug or alcohol use

We're here to help

If you or your children are affected by someone else’s drug or alcohol use we can support you.

We know that no one sets out to have a problem with drugs or alcohol but that sometimes things can escalate out of control. When this happens it can have a long lasting impact on family life and relationships for everyone in the family, especially for children.

We can support you to:

  • strengthen your relationships
  • improve family life
  • Reducing the risk from parental drug or alcohol use
  • make children and young people more resilient

We offer non-judgemental support from committed staff and treat each family and individual as unique, with their own strengths and needs.

We don’t judge people. Please phone or email us so we can tell you more about how we can help.

This is a partnership between Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust, WDP and Humankind.
