A little about us
We are a Norfolk charity that provide a free confidential service to young people up to 19. These young people can be using substances themselves (we refer to this as Substance Misuse, or SM for short) or that have a parent, carer or sibling thats using substances that could be affecting them (we refer to this as Affected Other, or AO for short).
Support for you
We can provide brief support to parents who are worried about their childs substance misuse. This can include virtual group sessions, focusing on the exploration of family dynamics, boundaries, consequences and the development of support networks.
We also run a parent support group which runs monthly and provides a chance to meet other parents who are experiencing similar difficulties. The groups aims are to help deal with the worries and stresses faced while providing strategies to help you to cope and deal with the challenges that often arise. The parent support group takes place 19:00 - 21:00 at 70 - 80 Oak St, Norwich, NR3 3AQ. Booking is essential.
For more information on this specifically or to book a place, please email: email@example.com
