Reduce the impact of your use on others

During lockdown, the alcohol or drug use of one person can impact a whole household. Talking with your loved ones, and working together to make a plan can keep everyone safer.


These questions might help you get started:

  • Who is living in your home, and how might they be affected by alcohol and drug use in the household? If there are kids, what might they be watching and learning?
  • What signs might indicate that alcohol or drug use is starting to affect others in the household?
  • What limits or boundaries could you agree upon to help keep everyone safer?
