Aylesbury Support for Families of Addicts
Caring for a friend or family member with an addiction is likely to be one of the harded things anyone can ever go through, especially if you don’t know where to turn for help.
One of our residents, who has cared for an addict for over 5 years and has supported him through rehabilitation, has set up a support group to provide somewhere for friends and families of addicts to meet, share experiences and get information about what help is available.
Becky, the founder of ASFFA, is working to break the stigma attached to loving an addict:
“Addiction is seen as such a taboo subject that families seem frightened to reach out and get help. I want people to see there is no shame in loving an addict, and neither is there in asking for support.”
The group meets fortnightly at the Wycliffe End Hub and can also offer sessions on a 121 basis as well as support through their Facebook page and private Facebook group. Head over to the page to read about Becky’s journey supporting her husband through addiction.
