The BEAD (Bereaved through Alcohol and Drugs) project was set up by Cruse and Adfam to provide practical and emotional support and information for people bereaved through drug or alcohol use.
We recently broadened the reach of our support by launching the BEAD website. This new site aims to be a source of information, support and hope for anyone whose loved one has died as a result of drug or alcohol use. It outlines where and how to access appropriate support whilst providing information on what to expect when you are grieving as well as practical information on the next steps that have to take place as a result of a death.
Throughout the website there are honest and personal accounts from people who have themselves been bereaved and we hope reading them will make people in a similar situation feel less isolated.
