Family Support: Information For Families

Supported by the Western Region Drug and Alcohol Task Force, G1 Family Focus is a new peer-led support group in Galway for families affected by someone's drug and/or alcohol use .

This support group is a safe and non-judgmental place for the family members of substance users to come together to discuss common issues in relation to dealing with alcohol/drug use within their family. It is facilitated by family members who have been affected by such issues in their own family and are former members of family support groups.

Some of the benefits of attending a peer-led family support group are to:

  • Obtain knowledge and information
  • Have your own space and time out
  • Learn to cope with addiction
  • Find unity and support

This group will commence on the 19th November in the Pastoral Centre, Newtownsmith, Galway. For further information, please contact Cecily/Margaret @ 085 111 5400.
