About Family Drug Support

Family Drug Support was formed in 1997 after it's founder Tony Trimingham lost his son to a heroin overdose. Bereft, Tony felt frustrated by the general apathy and ignorance of his own experience.

This was also the plight of many other families. Realising this was but the tip of the iceberg, a public meeting was called where hundreds of people attended.

Sometimes it's not easy to talk and share your experiences and views with others and so this website has been designed to allow you, and anybody with a story to tell, the opportunity to share with others.

This new website is open for everybody to use. You can be someone who has used, or continues to use, drugs and alcohol.
