 Family Counselling Service

Family Matters

​Family Matters was developed as an individual counselling service for family members so that they can find their own support from a counsellor, even if their loved one is not yet ready to seek help.

Family members have their own unique recovery needs. Our caring team comprises a psychiatrist and addiction specialist counsellors who can support and guide you in better managing your own recovery needs, and finding balance and peace. 

How are family members affected?

Family members often experience tremendous stress and feelings of helplessness as a result of living with someone with an addiction. Yet, many caregivers do not know where or who to turn to for help.
    The addicted individual affects at least four other people who are close to him. Often, the people closest to the person with the addiction require unique services that address their special needs.
      If you are living with someone with an addiction, you don’t have to feel alone. Even if your loved one is not ready to seek treatment for his addiction, you can still speak to us. We have a team of dedicated specialists who will listen to you and support you in managing your situation better.

      Our Aims

      • Support families in coping with the stress of living with an addiction in the family
      • Help families to understand the best ways to manage an addicted family member
      • Provide families with resources when the person with addiction is not yet ready to seek help
      • Provide assessment and appropriate referrals for families
