SMART F&F meetings support Family and Friends of young people living in East Lothian and Midlothian who use substances, to establish healthier relationships. The programme supports those affected by a young person’s substance use to concentrate on themselves and learn new ways of dealing with the challenges, thoughts, and emotions that they experience. The meetings focus on positive communication, disabling and enabling, and trust and self-care. More information about SMART F&F can be found at https://smartrecovery.org.uk/smart_family__friends/
