Action on Addiction has announced the dates for the year ahead of its four day residential programme for family and friends of addicts.

Taking place at the Centre for Addictions Treatment Studies in Warminster, Wiltshire, the retreat helps adult family members, partners and friends who are suffering or who have suffered from the consequences of another’s drug and/or alcohol misuse.

It provides family members and friends with a safe place where they can speak about their difficulties with others who share similar experiences, while also gaining information and education about addiction and its effects on others.

Experienced family counsellors from Clouds House help family members to understand what is happening and how to begin making changes, and workshops, discussions and group therapy provide opportunities to explore personal issues and to receive help.

A formal evaluation has indicated that this short intervention can make a significant difference to the recovery process for the whole family.

The dates for the year ahead are:

  • 17-20 September 2018

  • 8-11 October 2018

  • 18-21 February 2019

  • 18-21 March 2019

  • 10-13 June 2019 


It is not necessary for a family member or friend to be in treatment to benefit from this programme.
