Supporting families across Scotland
Scottish Families Affected by Alcohol & Drugs was founded in 2003 by a small group of people who wished to create a united force to help raise awareness of the difficulties they faced in their own families. Today, SFAD is the hub of a network of support groups across Scotland.
SFAD provides support to family members and friends who have been affected by the substance use of a relative or loved one. We help raise awareness of issues affecting them as well as providing information, help and support through a wide variety of resources.
Our vision is for a Scotland which recognises the role played by and supports the needs of families and communities affected by substance use.
Our mission is to support families across Scotland who are affected by alcohol and drugs use, and raise awareness of the issues affecting them.
