Theatre In Education
DrugFAM believes in the potential of theatre as an entertainment package to attract target audience attention, hold their interest in passing vital drug abuse message and its effect on individual and family members. We educate people through performances of the play: "Mum, can you borrow me twenty quid? What drugs did to my family".
This is offered to persons unable to attend support groups or counselling because of disability or some different personal reasons. DrugFAM team consisting out of two workers will meet with them on an appointment and talk to them about their situation regarding the influence that someone's substance abuse have on them. This is offered only to persons who have lost someone to addiction or those with an addict in their family.
