The South East Regional Family Support Network (SERFSN) is a self-help organisation that respects the lived experiences of families affected by drugs in a welcoming non-judgemental way.
The Network primarily supports the development of family support groups throughout the south east region of Waterford, Wexford, Carlow, Kilkenny and South-Tipperary.
Through this work the Family Support Network raises awareness of the difficulties faced by families in coping with drug use while recognising the important role that families play in supporting the recovery of the drug using family member.
Family support is where family members of those using drugs can come together to talk about how they have been affected.
A Family Support Group is a safe, confidential and non-judgemental place for the family members of drug users to come together to discuss common issues in relation to dealing with drug use within their family.
Most families dealing with drug use are looking for answers. The answers they look for initially relate to their child - where can she/he go for treatment? In most cases, family members don't realise that they need help for themselves.
The group can support members through difficult times sometimes just by listening, other times by sharing how they dealt with similar situations.
