Parents and Carers Services

The impact on families of drug or alcohol use often gets overlooked, and families can feel very isolated and alone.  They may feel unsure of what help is available or how to access it, or even where to go to get information and advice.

Worcestershire County Council is committed to providing help and support to people struggling to cope with a loved one’s substance misuse, and to offer a signposting service to other support that is available. We hope that you will find this website a useful resource that helps you to access the information, advice and support you need to deal with the difficult issues that arise from substance misuse.
