Welcome to Addiction Helper.

An information web site and treatment helpline for people with addictions, created by people in recovery.

Finding useful information and resources about addiction or alcoholism can be a minefield. To increase the chance of a successful recovery and life of sobriety it is important to receive guidance from a reliable source. Whether that be an established hotline or NHS service. Finding the right treatment for yourself or a loved one can often seem daunting so you want to feel you are in safe hands when you take that first vital step to a better life.

The Journey to Addiction Recovery

There is no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to finding what is needed for you or your loved one’s recovery. For some, private rehab might be the best option to build a strong foundation for long term sobriety. Time away to break the cycle of an addictive lifestyle and escape from the stresses and worries of everyday life, can make all the difference in those first days of recovery.

Alternatively you might want to discuss the services available to you on the NHS, in terms of local Drug and Alcohol Teams (DAT) and support groups.

Quite often before this even becomes an option the family may need to stage an intervention; a way of managing the addict or alcoholic still be in denial into a treatment programme. Intervention is often a prelude for admission into an addiction rehab.

There are a multitude of options available when it comes to finding the right alcohol rehab or drug rehab for you or your loved ones needs. Whether you are looking for medical detox, short term treatment, long term treatment or luxury treatment, it comes down to the specific requirements of the individual. You will want to leave no stone unturned to ensure you are getting what is essential for the best chance of a solid recovery. It can feel overwhelming, but it doesn’t need to.
