Introduction to Supporting Families 

The Introduction to Supporting Families course provides anyone who works with families with the knowledge and skills to recognise and include all family members who are affected by someone else’s alcohol or drug use.

By completing this training you will be able to:

  • Recognise that families need support and how this can be different to that for the alcohol or drug user.
  • Discuss family members’ experiences and needs, and how family members can support recovery.
  • Relate empathy and listening skills to family support.
  • Identify local support options for family members.


The Introduction to Supporting Families course is £250 for two-hours of training with a max of 15 participants.

Further Information

We have worked with families and organisations that help and support families for over fifteen years. We have been given invaluable information from family members to be able to provide these courses to the alcohol, drug and wider workforce, and to have people living with someone else’s alcohol or drug use recognised and supported.

Depending on exact requirements and expenses, generally, our courses are £500 for a half-day course or £900 for a full-day course.  Each course can take up to fifteen members of staff. For larger groups, we can run two half-day courses for the full-day rate.

We can deliver learning & development online using Zoom or Microsoft Teams, and to address screen fatigue the ½ day delivery is broken down into two separate 2-hour sessions which can be scheduled normally a week apart. The delivery via two separate 2-hour sessions further ensures the integrity of the training is not diluted.
