SFAD Bereavement Resource

Scottish Families Affected by Alcohol & Drugs provides support to family members and friends who have been affected by the substance use of a relative or loved one.

They help raise awareness of issues as well as providing information, help and support through a wide variety of resources.

SFAD have released a booklet about bereavement for anyone who has experienced the sudden or unexplained death of a loved one, and/or is bereaved through drugs or alcohol.

It can be found HERE.

Family members who have lost a loved one from a substance-related death and suicide have written this booklet with the support of Scottish Families Affected by Alcohol and Drugs (Scottish Families).
