Community Reinforcement Approach (CRAFT)

The Community Reinforcement Approach (CRAFT) Programme is provided by the Cardiff & Vale Integrated Family Support Team. It is a free, informal and relaxed therapeutic programme, designed for family members, partners and friends who have a loved one with substance addiction.

The programme is designed to give you the support and skills you need to positively influence loved ones. The aim is to improve communication, while building understanding and a more enriched relationship with the person who is experiencing substance addiction.

Families who have gone through CRAFT have reported:

  • A happier relationship with their loved one.
  • Better family cohesion.
  • Less conflict, anger or depression.
  • A greater understanding of each other.

The CRAFT team will assess your needs and then will either offer individual or group sessions taken by a qualified worker over a number of weeks. Sessions take place in community locations across Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan and can even take place at home, depending on your circumstances.
