WE CAN HELP
Whatever your situation, we CAN help.
Here at Recovery From Addiction, we understand that problematic use of substances can arise due to a multitude of factors and understanding the reasons that you are finding it difficult to stop or moderate your usage is the first step to making changes. It could be that you are struggling with difficult emotions such as anxiety, stress, depression, anger or boredom. It could also be due to feeling stuck in your life and not knowing how to change. It might well be that you have used drugs or alcohol for so long that they have become part of your identity and you can no longer imagine living life without them.
We can provide online help to understand what is driving your need to rely on drugs or alcohol. We can help you assess where you are in your life and help you take steps to make changes that will result in more satisfaction and fulfillment. We can help you understand the reasons why you might be constantly repeating unhelpful patterns of behaviour and we can give you the tools to help you manage life without drugs and alcohol, if that is what you want.
We can also help and support you if you want to know how to help a friend or family member who is stuggling with substance abuse.
Contact us if you have any questions at all or sign up for a free no-obligation consultation to find out how we can help you.
