7 5-Step Method & National Policy Recommendations of Report of Working Group on Rehabilitation (May 2007): Recommendations 4.2 Service providers should be trained to deal with families who are trying to cope with drug-related problems of a family member. Families should be seen as service users in their own right, given that they often have a direct role in the recovery process. Information, support and advice should be made available to parents (and others as appropriate) who are coping with a family members drug misuse. Family members need to informed in a timely manner of the different stages of the recovery process. The potential of the involvement of the family in supporting drug users should be utilised.

8 5-Step Method & National Policy National Drugs Strategy (2009 – 2016) Action 29 Develop a series of prevention measures that focus on the family under the following programme headings: supports for families experiencing difficulties due to drug/alcohol use; targeted measures focusing on the children of problem drug and/or alcohol users aimed at breaking the cycle and safeguarding the next generation. Report of the National Substance Misuse Working Group (Feb 2012) Action 12 Develop a comprehensive outcomes and evidence-based approach to addressing the needs of children and families experiencing alcohol dependency problems. This would involve a whole-family approach, including the provision of supports and services directly to children where necessary.
