It is heartbreaking to have to watch a loved one fall into addiction. It is difficult to understand how these people can fail to see the mess they are making of their lives. But the addict seems to be almost oblivious to the destruction they cause. Of course, there will be a time when this person will be full of remorse and may even promise to change, but most times they will fail to learn from the experience. It is easy to understand how loved ones can start to despair and even decide to cut this individual out of their lives completely. There are families in Runcorn who find themselves in this situation, and it is never easy. Luckily there is drug and alcoholics support available for families.

We will perform a thorough assessment of your situation as well as your personal, work, and financial circumstances in order to give you the most appropriate information on rehab in Runcorn based on your specific needs and requirements.
Does Addiction Affect my Family?
It is often stated that addiction is a family disease. This does not mean that all the members of the family are abusing alcohol or drugs. It just means that each member of this unit can be negatively impacted by the behaviour of an addict in their family – they all suffer. The family usually learns to cope with this situation by adapting maladaptive coping strategies, and this can lead to further dysfunction. It reaches a stage where all members of the family will need help if they are to overcome this problem.
The first step to ending the addiction is usually to get the addict to attend drug counselling or, better still, enter a drug or alcohol treatment centre. This may solve the problem for the substance abuser, but it does not necessarily solve the problems of the rest of the family. This is why, in many situations, it will be necessary to have some support available for each member of this unit. This way the family will be able to adjust and begin to function normally again. Addiction Helper has access to these resources and can refer you to the right people and places to get the support and help that you and the rest of your family need.
What Are My Options for Drug or Alcohol Rehab in Runcorn?
We have access to private clinics, local charities, NHS Services, and other support groups. From this pool of resources, we advise you on the most appropriate rehabs and groups that you can access to get the help that you need in Runcorn. The assessment that we do when we speak to you will guide our conversation. Private clinics could be financially inviable for some individuals, so we will need to know if you are in a position to pay for the treatment. If not, we need to determine if you qualify for government funding as some private clinics accept this form of funding. Alternatively we will need to access the NHS treatment system or charities and get you the help you need through that resource.
Of course, you can also join community groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, and we will be able to give you the names and contact details of other charities working in the Runcorn area who will also be able to help you.
