The possibility of substance abuse rarely crosses a young person’s mind when he or she takes their first drink or smokes their first marijuana cigarette. After all, using alcohol and drugs recreationally is part of the modern culture. However, for some people, what begins as an experiment or light, casual use spirals into an uncontrolled habit that leads to substance abuse and eventual addiction. There are people here in Long Eaton living through the nightmare right now.
If you are one of those suffering from substance abuse or addiction, we want you to know there is help available. There is a way out of your situation with the right treatment and plenty of support. The first step in finding that help is contacting us here at Addiction Helper.
Our organisation was established with a single purpose in mind: to assist addicts and their families by providing counselling and referral services that are confidential and free. We have established an addiction recovery helpline staffed by professional and knowledgeable counsellors with a genuine desire to help you. Our helpline is available 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
It’s Your Decision
Our purpose at Addiction Helper is not to force anyone into recovery who does not want to be there. We respect your right to make your own decisions. Having said that, the decision to get well is entirely up to you. We would encourage you to seriously consider your situation; we urge you to be honest about yourself and where your life currently is.
The options for rehab in Long Eaton include private clinics, NHS services and a number of local charities. We are prepared to provide you all the information you need to make a decision based on your circumstances. If you are not sure what you need, our counsellors are trained to provide a comprehensive assessment based on the answers you provide to a few questions. That assessment can help you understand where you currently are and what types of treatment you need to overcome your problems.
It may turn out that an outpatient programme combined with group support is just what you need to overcome substance abuse. On the other hand, it may be that a 4 to 12 week residential programme is more suited to your needs. These are the types of things our assessment is designed to identify. If you are willing to call us, we are willing to help you figure it out.
