Family Support

At BAC O’Connor Centre, in Staffordshire, we understand the enormous strain that a loved one’s addiction can have on family members.

Our Friends and Family Support Group provides therapeutic support in a welcoming and friendly environment to enable those affected by a loved one’s addiction to speak candidly and confidentially with others and share experiences.

Meeting weekly every Thursday evening from 6.30pm – 8pm at Burton House, George Street, Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire, or remotely via zoom, the Friends and Family Support Group provides a safe and secure environment to offer knowledge about addiction and recovery and enable family members to focus energy on their own lives and identify different skills to help deal with the stress of a loved one’s addiction.

FAQs about the Friends and Family Support Group

Can I attend if I don’t have a family member in treatment at the BAC O’Connor Centre?

Yes, all family and friends who have a loved one experiencing addiction/ dependency problems are welcome.

Will I have to talk about personal issues?

No, it’s just about what you are comfortable with sharing. You are welcome to come along and just listen at first and if the opportunity presents itself where you would like to talk, that is your choice each week.

What about confidentiality?

Confidentiality is a pre-requisite for this Group. Anyone attending will be required to sign a confidentiality agreement. What is said in the Group remains in the room and goes no further.
