Holding Families

Holding Families is a multi-disciplinary service delivered by Early Break.  Its aims are to help families with problems associated with significant parental substance misuse, where children and adults needs are dealt with and responded to at the same time.

We work with each family member seperately and as a family unit, for about five months.  We will work with families where there is at least one young person under the age of 18 living in the family home, or where the substance using parent is pregnant.  At least one of the parents should have problematic drug or alcohol use.
