Help me understand: A booklet to help children, young people and workers talk about an adult’s alcohol and drug treatment

This booklet is aimed at children and young people aged 10–14, but it can be adapted to suit the child or young person you are working with.

It is intended for use with children and young people whose parent or carer is in treatment and is based on messages from other children and young people who are affected by an adult’s substance misuse. It is not an assessment tool but is designed to help you have a conversation with a child or young person where there is an adult in their life who is getting help with their drinking or drug use.

You might be using this resource on its own or as a part of a larger piece of work you are doing with this child or young person or their family.
