Rainbow Recovery, Family & Friends

If you are affected by a friend or family member’s drug or alcohol use, come along for a cuppa and a chat.

Our Group

Edinburgh council is currently unable to offer community lets, which has meant that we have had to find a new venue.

We run on a Monday morning (during term time), at 10.30am-11:30am in North Merchiston Club, 48 Watson Crescent, Edinburgh.

COVID-19 introduced to the world of online communication and for some this has been a real survival tool. So, we will continue to deliver our online meetings via Zoom. We are continually reviewing this to best meet the needs of the people who want to attend, so please check our social media for updates. We can also arrange a zoom session with a facilitator that suits your timing best.

We also have a Facebook Closed Group which you’re welcome to join if you find yourself needing to vent or are looking to see what others have done in similar circumstances. The closed group is private and DOES NOT show on your general newsfeed. It is only visible to those who are in the group.

Our facilitators are also trained as CRAFT practitioners. CRAFT is a program that is purposefully designed for the family of addicts and we are looking at possibilities of being able to deliver this as a course online in the New Year.

We are also about to undertake training that is aimed at helping children to understand about addiction and develop resilience. We’re excited about this as it allows us to offer supports to the larger family unit.
