Beacon South Yorkshire Carer Support (Supporting parents, relatives and friends of drug and alcohol misusers)
Beacon South Yorkshire Carer Support provides a service for friends, carers and family members who’s loved ones have a substance misuse problem.
We are a caring group of people who are living/have lived with addiction in the family unit. We are a voluntary organisation and with the help of our supporters and dedicated volunteers we have developed a programme which includes:
- Social events/ Respite
- Coffee mornings
- Support and beauty therapies
- Telephone support helpline
- One to one support sessions
- Group support sessions
We have two unique programmes to help you on your journey:
- Stepping Stones Programme
The Stepping Stones programme is structured into 7 steps and you will be assigned someone to support you throughout the programme. Begin your journey at Step 1 (Awareness) and once you reach Step 7 we will begin supporting you with aftercare.
- Next Phase Programme
The Next Phase Programme follows on from Stepping Stones after evaluation and feedback. The programme includes sessions on communication, drug and alcohol awareness, preparation for working life (CV writing and application forms) and finally we will support you to find volunteering opportunities.
If someone you care about is using drugs or alcohol you don't have to cope alone. To speak to someone in confidence call us on 01226 242990 or you can drop in on Tuesday's and Thursday's for a cuppa and chat.
