NHS & Private Rehab Guide For Alcohol And Drug Treatment In Greater London

Addiction begins in many ways, but most addicts are unable to pinpoint the exact moment when they moved from recreational use to becoming a full-blown addict. Addiction is characterised by repetitive use, an inability to quit on your own, continued use even when you know the negative consequences, lying about the severity of your addiction, hiding drug use, violent outbursts, and irrational mood swings.

The wonderful news is that we can help you get your life back and break free from addiction. Most illicit substances affect both your physical and mental health. Through the application of an evidence-based, personalised treatment plan, a rehab centre can remove the drugs from your system, reverse most of the effects of said addiction, help you understand why you abused drugs in the first place, and teach you coping skills to ensure you maintain abstinence after treatment.

Get started by calling a free helpline today, and drug counsellors will guide you to the next step.
