The Suffolk Helpline

Page updated - 20 February 2005


Drug and/or alcohol use can be a silent subject, with many families and carers burdening the problem alone, this is why we feel it is important to let those concerned about somebody else's use know that there is a service out there especially for them. If you live with, know of someone, or are affected by someone else's use of drugs or alcohol there is a local, free and confidential service for advice, information and emotional support. The Suffolk Helpline is open Monday to Friday I0am to 6pm. (An answer phone is available out of hours). We are here to help those coping with a family member, friend, partner or anyone else's drug and/or alcohol use.

The Suffolk Helpline provides a free confidential advice and support for people affected by others use of drugs and alcohol. We can provide details of the services available in the Suffolk area as well as providing weekly support groups through our Families and Carers Community Support Service which aims to help improve coping skills and develop awareness and insight into drug and alcohol use. It is also open to young people between the ages of 13 and 19 who take drugs and/or alcohol or are worried about someone else's use.

There is no need to feel isolated or alone, for further information please call the Suffolk Helpline on free phone 0808 800 II 22.
