Work with Derbyshire Alcohol Advice Service (DAAS)
Relate Derby and Southern Derbyshire is funded to offer free counselling and support for families, individuals and couples affected by someone's alcohol misuse.
Many people struggle to cope when a partner, family member or parent is having difficulty to manage their drinking. Even after they have succeeded to change their negative drinking patterns the impact on the family can be significant.
Coming to counselling can help in lots of ways, including:
Breaking patterns of behaviour that may put a person at risk
Helping family members come to terms with what has happened
Developing self esteem
Developing positive communication with a family following change
If someone is unsure if counselling can help they can come along for a first appointment anyway. If we can't help we'll do our best to work with them to find someone who can. People can self refer or with the person's permission this can be done by a family member, support worker or GP. Please make sure that the individual wants to receive the service before making a referral.
Services with this project are available to anyone living in Derbyshire.
We have free Family counselling available as part of this project in South Derbyshire and Amber Valley.
Free Safe Speak counselling for young people through this project in Derby City, Chesterfield, Burton, Amber Valley and South Derbyshire.
DAAS offers free Brief Intervention counselling to anyone affected by alcohol misuse. This may be the drinker themselves or adult family members, partners or friends. Group work sessions for partners and training for professionals working with families affected by alcohol misuse is also available.
DAAS works in venues across Derbyshire.
