I was lucky enough to attend an incredible training event hosted by Scottish Families Affected by Alcohol and Drugs http://www.sfad.org.uk/ . We received a fantastic presentation by Dr Jan Ligon, a specialist in the field, and also someone with direct experience of family substance misuse. After his masterclass, we were lucky enough to view a performance of a play written and performed by families who have been deeply affected by substance misuse. The stories they had to tell were incredibly powerful and the whole experience was moving. It can be easy to forget about all of the people affected by our own behaviour, and the performance really illustrated how our actions impact those who love us.
