This new UK report looks at drug and alcohol-related stigma through the eyes of the family – not just parents, but partners, children and siblings too. They can all be abandoned by friends, isolated by workmates and even cut off by other family members.

Aims of this report:
• Improve awareness and understanding of how stigma affects family members of drug and alcohol users, and drug and alcohol users themselves
• Codify existing literature around the topic and provide additional, emotive, person-centred perspectives
• Create a successful platform through which to engage with multiple stakeholder groups around the stigma experienced by drug and alcohol users and their families
