CATCH - Families Support Scheme (CATCH) is a two-year project sponsored by the Beat Drugs Fund since June 2016, aiming to support drug abusers’ family members who generally suffer from different levels of physical or psychological symptoms of stress. CATCH strives to enhance the family members’ capability and knowledge of dealing with drug-taking problems and to equip with skills to raise the motivation of the drug abusers to seek help. In addition, CATCH provides the family members’ with counseling services and teaches them different body-mind activities so as to help them alleviate their stress arisen from their family drug problem. We strongly believe that positive familial interaction may strengthen support for drug abusers and raise their motivation to receive treatment services.
