About Inexcess Families and Carers
I believe everyone today knows someone with a drink, drugs or mental health problem; it’s in our families, our communities and our workplaces.
It’s affecting more people than ever before; and every person with a problem has an impact on as many as five others, an impact that can devastate families.
These are the stories of loved ones who care, who became carers, inspiring stories of how they helped parents, children, relatives and friends to recover and rebuild their lives.
By telling these stories and publicising the issues we hope to help families and carers, and anyone concerned for a loved one to understand the problems, the treatment options and self help tools that are the key to recovery, and how to cope as a carer. We also hope that these stories will help to raise the profile of the carers role and carers rights.
Seeing a loved one get better is the greatest reward for any carer but getting there is a very challenging and emotional journey, sharing this experience and understanding is vital if we are to help more people to find recovery and turn their lives around.

“Caring for a daughter with a drug problem was one of the most difficult and emotional experiences of my life. Seeing her get well, then sharing my experience and understanding for the benefit others has definitely been one of the most rewarding”.
- Carole G., Carer
