Welcome to FASS

FASS is a confidential support service for parents and adult family members affected by or concerned about a loved one's drug or alcohol use.

We offer support, counselling, advice and information to parents, spouses, partners and adult family members who due to their loved one's alcohol or drug problems are feeling the negative impact which this has on them.

Drugs and alcohol can have a devastating effect on families. If you have reason to believe someone close to you is misusing drugs or alcohol you might consider getting in touch with us!

We know how you feel and you are not alone!

FASS is open between 9:00am and 4:00pm Monday to Friday.

Outside office hours a message can be left on our out of office answer service on 0141 420 2050 and someone will return your call. You can also contact us by email at info@fassglasgow.org.
