The University of Bath and University of Stirling has launched their practice guidelines for working with families bereaved by an alcohol or drug-related death (for more info see http://www.bath.ac.uk/research/news/2015/06/23/bereavement-guidelines/) .   

Last year Scotland lost 526 people due to a drug-related death.  Drug-related deaths are sudden and unexpected.  Families may experience stigma from relatives, friends and communities including isolation, criticism and judgement.  Through timely and appropriate support the quality of life and general well-being of families bereaved through a drug-related death will substantially improve.

The SFAD Bereavement Counselling Service provides early intervention support to family members and up to 6 counselling sessions and the opportunity to participate in peer support groups.

Families who have lost a loved one within the last 3 years can access the service by contacting the Scottish Families Helpline: 08080 10 10 11 

As an organisation if you would like an information leaflet/poster please contact their Bereavement Co-ordinator Karin Figliolini (karin@sfad.org.uk).
