The Royal College of Psychiatrists have produced online leaflets for the public. They include useful, basic information and podcasts of personal stories. This leaflet is for carers and professionals (produced for the Partners in Care campaign).

This leaflet is aimed at:
■the carers of people with alcohol and drug problems (substance misuse) who provide continuing help and support, without payment, to a relative, partner or friend;
■the addiction specialists and other professionals involved in the care and treatment of the person with these problems.

It suggests ways of improving communication and partnerships when the person has first been diagnosed with a substance misuse or dependence disorder.
