If a parent or carer uses drugs or alcohol it doesn’t necessarily make them a bad person. However, some parents and carers do misuse drugs and alcohol and this can sometimes be a very difficult thing for you to have to deal with, as their behaviour may affect you in very negative ways.
Pavilions is a local service that offers support to the families of parents or carers who misuse drugs or alcohol. You can ring them for free on 0800 014 9819 for confidential advice and information.
