The effects of the cost of living crisis on families and friends of someone with a substance use problem

The impact of addiction on family finances is multiple.

It is therefore no surprise to find that the cost of living crisis is causing additional difficulty and strain to families affected by substance use, adding further complexity to the challenges they face.

For this research, Adfam spoke directly to 100 participants about the challenges families are facing right now. It finds that family members are in desperate need of additional support and help from those delivering services and that policymakers need to react to the additional challenges families are facing.
