Help for a Friend
Are you worried that someone close to you has a problem with addiction? Do you think they’re drinking too much, taking drugs, gambling, have an addiction to sex or an eating disorder? You’re in the right place. At Addiction Helper, we know that this is a confusing and difficult time for you. We’re here to get your loved one the right help and the best possible treatment. And we’ll make sure that you’re supported all the way.
What to look out for
Every addiction is different which means that every addiction produces different signs and symptoms. But, if you’re concerned that someone you care about has an addiction, ask yourself a few key questions.
- Are they becoming secretive?
- Have they hanging out with different people?
- Are they having mood swings?
- Has their physical appearance changed?
- Are they losing weight?
- Is property disappearing?
- Are they disappearing mysteriously for long periods of time?
If the answer to any of these is yes, your loved one may have an addiction problem. Read on and we’ll tell you how to get help.
Get free, confidential advice
Call us on 0800 4488 688 and our trained telephone counsellors will give you free, confidential advice. Even if you’re unsure that someone you care about is suffering from an addiction, we’d rather you spoke to us so we can put your mind at rest. But instincts are often right and we’ll explore all the available options, from residential rehab and outpatient programs to counselling and local support groups.
What if my loved one won’t accept help?
Intervention is the most successful way of getting your loved one the help they need. It’s a structured process that helps an addict to recognise the extent of their problem. At Addiction Helper, we use experienced interventionists who can motivate the individual towards recovery and to give you the tools you need to support your loved one.
How do I find the right treatment centre?
You don’t have to. That’s our job. We work with the best private rehab and detox clinics in the UK and internationally. All are certified by the Care Quality Commission and comply with our own stringent regulations. You can be assured that we’ll find the most appropriate rehab facility for your loved one’s addiction and circumstances. We’ll help you arrange payment and we can organise transport to get your loved one there. If you want, we’ll even take them ourselves or arrange for a sober transporter to accompany them so you know that your loved one is safe. Help for family, friends, and close ones is just as important as the help people suffering with addiction need.
