NATIONAL FAMILY SUPPORT NETWORKSUPPORTING FAMILY MEMBERS LIVING WITH SUBSTANCE MISUSE

East Coast Area Booklet Launch

The East Coast Area Family Support Network (ECAFSN) launched their information booklet for Families Affected by Drug & Alcohol Misuse on the 22nd March 2012. The booklet provides family members with information on family support and local family support groups. In addition the booklet provides family members with an overview of some of the issues that families living with substance misuse experience including guardianship and foster care, bereavement, intimidation and imprisonment.  A directory of services is also included at the back of the booklet.  The intention of this is to encourage families to access relevant services in their local area.

The launch of the booklet was held in the Ramada Hotel in Bray. Speakers on the day included Geraldine Fitzpatrick (Chairperson, ECAFSN), Sadie Grace (Coordinator, FSN) and representatives from various groups that form the ECAFSN.

Attendees at the launch expressed their congratulation on the booklet and provided the ECAFSN with excellent ideas for future initiatives. The ECAFSN work from community development principles and wold be glad to provide information or advice to other local or regionally based networks that would like to publish a similar booklet.
