Adfam is UK based charity organisation with a goal to make life easier for families of drug or alcohol addicts. We have a desire to provide an opportunity to be a part of an encouraging and loving family, to take advantage of stable relationships and have good physical and mental health to anybody that has been struck by another person's alcohol and drug abuse.
Drug and alcohol usage encourages physical, emotional and financial imbalances which can destroy family relationships.
We allow members of the family and close friends to help our personnel and influence decision-makers to make the right choices to prevent this from happening.
What We Value

So, we use compassion and evidence to inform, encourage and empower persons influenced by a loved one's substance abuse as well as the workers who help them. Capacity building, through making resources available to learn productive skills and instil confidence on individual's potential for productivity.
We Are Inspired By What Works
Substance use has a very significant but varied effect on family members. Our approach of work with care and close regard which works in the whole world. To achieve this, we never underestimate the value of real-life experience as well as formal research evidence and we also embrace evidence in all diversity.

We Are Dedicated To Accomplish Our Goal
Our overall objective is driven by commitment and partnering with organisations which share similar sentiments towards addiction rehabilitation.
