Family and friends

Getting support

The consequences of taking drugs go much further than just affecting the user themselves. It can cause stress and emotional strain on family, friends and concerned others.

It can be a long journey but there is support available for the people using and for those who care about them.

The Stockport Triage, Assessment and Referral Team (START) can provide you with support and information to help you understand what your loved one is experiencing and what can be done to help them.
