Substance abuse. It is a topic that engenders different reactions from different people. Nevertheless, if you find yourself in the throes of it, whether as an abuser or a family member, you know from personal experience what substance abuse can do to a person. Untreated substance abuse usually leads to addiction. Moreover, with addiction come physical, emotional, mental, and financial problems.

We Handle All Addictions
Addiction is a very personal thing that may involve substances, behaviours, or combination of both. We invite you to get in touch with Addiction Helper regardless of what you are struggling with. We can assist you in finding treatments for:
- illicit drugs (heroin, crack, etc.)
- prescription medications
- over-the-counter drugs
- legal highs (mephedrone, Ivory Wave)
- behaviours (gambling, sex).
Regardless of your particular addiction, they all have one thing in common: the addict acts impulsively even though he or she knows what they are doing is destructive. That is why it’s so important for addicts and their families to get help as soon as possible. Even more so, abusers need to reach out for help before they become addicts.
