Derbyshire Recovery Partnership (DRP) - Family Support Service

Derbyshire Recovery Partnership understands how much another person’s substance misuse can affect those around them. The support we offer is designed to support the whole family or those closely affected with the primary aim of encouraging the drug or alcohol user into treatment or to support them to stay in treatment. If however the person in treatment does not wish you or another family member to be present, or to be involved, we have adhere to their wishes and maintain their confidentially.

Support we can offer you as a family member or carer
One to one support

Our programme aims to help family members develop improved awareness, understanding and communication skills in order to encourage their loved one into treatment. Once in treatment the family will have an opportunity to work together with the person using drugs and/or alcohol to improve knowledge and communication between all parties to help maintain recovery.

If you wish to have support for yourself but separate to the substance user, we can work with you over 3 sessions initially. If the substance user does not wish to enter treatment we will then look at alternative services for you to ensure you continue to be supported. Your Key Worker will be able to suggest other services available in your local area. Some of those services are listed below: or call their Confidential Helpline: 020 7403 0888 or call: 0300 100 1234 Narcotics Anonymous - Helpline 0300 999 1212
