Alcohol & Drugs Action
If you or someone in your family has problems with substance misuse then you can receive a phone call from a trained volunteer to help with isolation and feelings of loneliness. This is part of a package offered by ADA where volunteers supplement the work of addiction workers to support people with alcohol and drug problems.
Information for volunteers
As a volunteer you would receive training in both telephone befriending and general substance misuse knowledge. ADA volunteers will provide social contact and are not expected to provide addiction support to people with a substance misuse problem themselves or a family member.
