MPACT (Moving Parents & Children Together) helps families overcome the impact of parental drug or alcohol use.
Moving Parents and Children Together (MPACT) is an 8 week programme for families with a parent or parents who are or have been substance users (drugs and alcohol) and who have children who experience parental substance misuse.
MPACT is a vibrant programme which works with the whole family addressing the impact of parental substance use with the aim of bringing the family together, improving communication, coping strategies and increasing resilience. Each session begins with a meal before moving onto the programme content.
Families can contact Drug Concern directly if they would like to access the programme, or they can be referred by another service.
