Catalyst offer support for family members and carers

We recognise that drugs and alcohol affect everyone not just the person who is using them and we are here to help friends and family, while keeping confidentiality. People attending our family/carer activities soon realise that they are not alone and that actually many of the issues and problems they may have are also being experienced by others.  Our Family and Friends services are run by trained group workers and counsellors and provide advice, support, coping strategies and, most importantly, understanding.
