It’s estimated that two million people in the UK are battling an addiction according to Action on Addiction.
Addiction can affect our relationships, careers and everything in between. Whilst some addicts appear to be able to function with daily tasks, some may be less able to do so. We see that some addicts are able to go days without their drug of choice i.e. alcohol, drugs, sex whilst some use everyday.
Addiction comes in many forms including alcohol, cocaine, marijuana, narcotics, prescription or any other drug(s). Also, many people are addicted to sex and/or masturbation, gambling, work, internet access, solvents or shopping. Some addicts are addicted to multiple drugs and behaviours.
What can prompt you to seek addiction counselling?
• Perhaps family or loved ones have mentioned their concerns about your addictive behaviour?
• Maybe friends or family members have asked you to seek help?
• Maybe you and your wife/husband/partner are living apart as a result of your addiction?
• Perhaps you're finding it hard to function when you don't have drugs or alcohol?
• Perhaps your addiction is impacting your health and/or relationships?
Whom ever or whatever prompted you to seek therapy, it is always more advantageous when the addicted person seeks therapy for themselves. Long term sobriety tends to be more achievable for those who engage in the process for themselves.
What have you tried already?
It can feel like you've tried everything already. Cutting back or stopping all together just hasn't worked. Maybe you’ve tried 12 step programmes or support groups, but these haven't helped either.
