Living Well: Life strategies for family, whanau and friends of people using alcohol and other drugs

This is a resource for family, whānau and friends of people using alcohol and other drugs. It provides suggestions, strategies and ideas about how people can look after themselves while dealing with the impact of a family, whānau member or friend's addiction.

This is a great resource for addiction practitioners to offer to family and whānau they are working with.

Please see for more information on support for family and whānau.
