Exposure to parental drug or alcohol misuse can have devastating effects on the psychosocial development of children into adults. In adult life it may lead to:

  • Anxiety
  • Anger
  • Depression
  • Difficulty trusting others
  • Unmet emotional needs
  • Relationship difficulties
  • An increased likelihood of substance misuse

InnerChild is a program for people who grew up in a family affected by drug or alcohol misuse which is now impacting negatively on their adult behaviour.

All Holyoake programs are based on a harm minimisation model.
