Addiction can be a very lonely experience. Even when surrounded by other people, alcoholics and drug addicts often feel overwhelmingly alone and with the weight of the world on their shoulders. Does that sound like the place where you find yourself today? If so, help is just a phone call away. Addiction Helper counsellors are ready to speak with you right now about breaking the cycle of addiction in your life.
Addiction Helper offers free advice and referral services in the Caister-on-Sea area. We do what we do because we are genuinely concerned about the health and well-being of those who contact us. We know how difficult it can be to overcome substance abuse or addiction, and we know that it is nearly impossible to do without help and support.
We want to be your contact point to private clinics, alcohol and drug charities, local support groups and others offering treatment. If we can help you get admitted to a rehab programme today, then we have fulfilled that portion of our mission. Are you ready to get well? Are you ready to finally break the cycle of addiction?
You Can Overcome
We refer to addiction as a cycle because of the way drugs and alcohol affect the brain. These psychoactive substances interrupt brain chemicals, thereby creating the feelings of pleasure one enjoys from drinking or taking drugs. However, the brain eventually gets used to the substances. In order to enjoy those same feelings of pleasure, one has to use more. Once the brain gets used to the increased amount, still more is needed. This is the cycle of addiction.
Breaking that cycle requires detox and psychotherapeutic treatments. Both are provided by the private rehab clinics we work with in Caister-on-Sea and across the UK. We believe private, residential rehab offers recovering addicts the best chance of success due to the highly focused care and distraction free environment. They are the best at what they do because they are able to concentrate all of their resources on it.
Outpatient recovery through local charities in the NHS is another option if residential treatment is not right for you. You may still need detox, but that can be conducted through a medically supervised process that involves visiting a clinic every day. Outpatient recovery also includes one-on-one counselling, group support participation and 12-step work. Regardless of the rehab method you choose, you can overcome.
