Drug & Alcohol Support For Mums, Dads and Pregnant Women
The National Specialist Family Service offers structured support for mums, dads, single parents and pregnant women looking to address their problematic drug or alcohol use. Families stay together as a whole unit at the service meaning that parents remain the carers of their children at the same time as taking part in the programme.
The programme focuses on three main areas; therapeutic interventions, parenting and childcare. The parenting element is underpinned by the Positive Parenting Programme (Triple P), an accredited programme which enhances the skills parents use in managing their child’s behaviours.
Our staff team are highly skilled and experienced with a passion for helping people create brighter futures for themselves, their families and communities.
The National Specialist Family Service is located in a beautiful suburb of Sheffield within easy reach of local amenities, the city centre and the Peak District National Park. The spacious service provides for up to 12 families with children up to the age of 11 years old.
